    A great place to work hard, test your limits, expand your knowledge and contribute to the success of the company.

    Former Employee - Senior Finance Manager in Redmond, WA

    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Intelligence, efficiency and effectiveness are highly regarded
    You are expected to question the norm and seek continuous improvement
    You are responsible for your own trajectory - you can take your current role beyond traditional limits, or seek a new challenge - this is not only accepted, but expected

    Cons

    Extremely fast-paced - not for everyone
    Everyone around you is as smart as you are, or smarter - this can be intimidating at times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep growing and changing when it has a positive impact on the overall vision for the company.

    Great company full of bright, passionate individuals that lacks the clear vision and cohesion to bring it all together.

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

    Pros

    Being surrounded by bright and passionate individuals makes for a strong growth environment. The readiness of others to help makes this the best place I've ever worked!

    Cons

    Many "dinosaur" business groups *cough* Windows *cough* want to keep working the way they did when processors had only 1 core and sub-100mhz clock speeds. Times have changed and there are still a few BGs that hold on to the old way of doing things and won't push forward.
