A good place to work

Software Development Engineer II (Current Employee)
Redmond, WA

ProsGigantic space, single office. Smart and knowledgeable colleagues. Large scale projects. Meaningful work. Reasonably good salary. No state income tax in WA.

ConsMany jobs are about maintaining and improving mature products, thus less innovative. Innovative projects tend to be concentrated in certain fields. Overall, the company is currently less innovative than some of its competitors.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
