Smart people who focus on achieving their own "objectives"

Manager (Former Employee) North Ryde (Australia)

ProsGreat brand awareness and large organisation benefits. A few intelligent people who make coming to work a good experience. Nice looking offices and travel to the USA once a year for training. If you're female and want a shortcut and career advancement apply immediately!

ConsVery factional environment and if you're not 'in' with the right people you'll not get any opportunities for advancement, currently very strict on female hires and advancement for ladies. Very cut throat environment with really bad behaviour at all levels that seem to be rewarded.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of top 3 layers of local management, bring in real Microsoft people to fix the current culture.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
