    Pros

    The company is filled with brilliant and intelligent people. Microsoft has all type of teams and plenty of opportunities for all kinds of work.

    Cons

    Growth is slow and the review process is not that good. Also the culture in some teams is very rigid. Not easy to influence and bring on change.

    Current Employee - Principal Program Manager in Redmond, WA

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    No limits on how far you can grow.
    Great opportunity to move from one role to other roles.
    Stable, meaningful work.
    You can change the world from here.

    Cons

    Performance review system encourages bad behavior and wastes time.
    A lot of focus on simplifying for management, not much tolerance for subtle nuances.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the performance stack rank system. Don't fire long term veteran good performers because of where they fall in the stack ranks.
