A great company to work for

Senior Software Development Engineer (Current Employee)
Redmond, WA

I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 10 years

ProsCompensation is great (pay + bonus + benefits) and reliable.
You get to work with a ton of passionate and smart coworkers.

ConsYour work tends to be siloed to specific areas and there is a lot of bureaucracy and politics involved, especially as you cross divisions. It may be one company but the various divisions often don't collaborate well.

Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage and reward cross-group collaboration and allow code to be changed across group boundaries.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
