Great employer, but not a high-flying market leader

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat benefits, reasonable working hours, plenty of career growth opportunities.

ConsCorporate culture dominated by lifetime employees and often has no bearing on reality.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the drastic change to become a cloud player. This will also change the corporate culture and put us back in a fighting position rather than a complacent market leader.

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