    Current Employee - Advertising Account Manager in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)
    Current Employee - Advertising Account Manager in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

    I have been working at Microsoft as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    company prestige, good salary, people

    Cons

    tools are not working properly and are out of date: they are making the job difficult. also the multiple processes are not helping, especially there is a lot of custom cases. Management is treating vendors like children and there is no good communication with the local markets who are not taking us seriously

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take care of your employees, respect them and be more active in representing the Dublin team so it can be the team you want it to be

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO
