Pros and cons (Review system sucks)

Software Development Engineer In Test (SDET) II (Current Employee) Redmond, WA

ProsStaff, Compensation (salary, stocks, bonus) , health/medical/ins, 401, work environment, work schedule, dress code.

ConsManagement, Review system, head to head competition in team work env.

Microsoft really need to think about review process specially evaluating Sr. employees. MS spends a lot of resources to take him to the Sr. level and then spent very few resources to help/find appropriate feet for U/10 employee. Even in all review guides said "5" is not a label, it is label for sure that practiced in every team in MS. To me this very neglected way to manage your assets.
Talking to MS employees I found that lying is pretty common among management.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
