No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Flex schedule and ability to work remote. Management understood employees had to balance family and work priorities. This varies by group. Good medical benefits: was 100% employer paid but that has changed now. Opportunities for growth and advancement within the company.

Cons

Forced stack ranking of employees penalizes managers with high productive teams and creates environment where their is internal competition within the same team.

Advice to Management

Eliminate the stack ranking of your employees. Employee focus should be on how to gain competitive edge on Microsoft's competitors and not within the organization.

    Pros

    Working at Microsoft provides great benefits, comfortable work spaces, friendly coworkers, great attention and support to all employees! All part of the companies culture and values.

    Cons

    There should be a more complete/robust action plan for new interns to find their place inside the company.
