Former Employee - Software Test Lead in Redmond, WA

I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

- Cutting edge technology.
- Interesting and new products to work on.

Cons

- Review process pretty hard-core. Reviews used to be (not sure if still are) on a bell curve, so someone had to do poorly, even when everyone was doing awesome.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More transparency with direction of the company and the review process would lead to more innovation.

    I have been working at Microsoft

    Pros

    Diverse workforce and product portfolio. Movement within the company means you can always find something "new" to do. Excellent benefits even as they've been curtailed over the years.

    Cons

    In the dwindling minority of Fortune 500 companies that still subscribe to Jack Welch's "Rank and Yank" review system.
