Good company with good pay and benefits

Senior Software Development Engineer (Current Employee)
Redmond, WA

ProsOverall it is good to be part of Microsoft. They pay well, benefits are good. Bonus and stock options are also good.

ConsResponsibility expectation is huge. Recently, they removed the no-cast medical benefits which make all of employees likely take a big cut in their take home salary. 401K match is only 50% where most of the big companies match 100%. Work-balance is always hard to maintain.

Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease the 401K match to 100 %.

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