Microsoft is a great company to work for

Software Development Engineer II (Current Employee)
Redmond, WA

I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 8 years

ProsYou can find a group that will interest you. There are lots of opportunities within Microsoft. Also Microsoft has great benefits and supports charities and tries to be a green company. You can make a big impact in Technology world and to customers.

ConsI think the review model should be redefined. Having a curve system and stack ranking is not the best solution and it impacts employee's productivity in a bad way.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
