Former Employee - Software Test Lead in Redmond, WA
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.

    Pros

    It is very employee focused as well as always striving to best serve its customers. Employees are very hard working but the company tries to provide a flexible and fun work environment.

    Cons

    As it has grown it has lost a lot of the personal feel that helped to make it the company it was years ago.
