Former Employee - Senior User Experience Designer in Redmond, WA

I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Worked with some of the most intelligent, driven, dedicated people i've ever had the pleasure of working with. Pushed me to grow and get better as a designer, and as a team mate in general.

Cons

Required to give it your all, work long hours and keep up with the competition. Potential for burn-out.

    Current Employee - Business Development Manager in Seattle, WA

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Global scale, consumer and business markets gives you an opportunity to move between, opportunity to move internationally and back again, great depth of talented people to work with, a business which is always moving into new markets and giving you the opportunity to grow. You will not get bored if you are a self starter and want to get something going.

    Cons

    Review model makes everyone hyper competitive and can lead to people being extremely political and un-collaborative
