    Former Employee - Account Manager in Reading, England (UK)

    I worked at Microsoft full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very smart people, focused and great opportunities for advancement with the right team. Excellent benefits and competitive salary. On campus benefits are fantastic. Always opportunities to reach out to other areas of the business and as long as you're doing your job, you are respected.

    Cons

    Work life balance is off sometimes, a risk averse business to a certain extent, difficult to advance if you don't get on with your manager, getting access to data from other areas of the business is hard and almost impossible to change a process quickly without executive 'buy in'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more opportunities to network internally
    Make stakeholder management a top priority

    Current Employee - Solution Architect  in  Amsterdam (Netherlands)
    Current Employee - Solution Architect in Amsterdam (Netherlands)

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great career potential and the opportunities are endless
    Great learning programs, they invest in you
    Great technology
    Good compensation
    Great place to work

    Cons

    Work life balance, nobody is preventing you from working too hard.
    The market perception of Microsoft is not always positive and you often run in religious discussions between Microsoft/Google, Microsoft/Apple, Microsoft/VMWare, Microsoft/Amazon
    You often get asked about random Microsoft technology, you don't necessarily know very well.
