Amazing Place to Learn and Grow Professionally

Senior Product Manager (Former Employee)
Redmond, WA

I worked at Microsoft

ProsConnections, Very very smart colleagues, opportunities to work in a variety of discipline over a quick period of time to learn other parts of the business. Resources and funding are outstanding and job security is very high.

ConsCan be quite political since everyone is so qualified. Work hours are intense, and you can't really disconnect even when you're gone. Stigma attached to Microsoft can be a downside in certain areas.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to do more to keep young talent around. Young talent all bails within 3-5 years to pursue higher paying/higher ranking positions elsewhere. Microsoft should recognize this earlier and promote people faster.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
