Former Employee - Technical Support Engineer in Dallas, TX
Former Employee - Technical Support Engineer in Dallas, TX

I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Microsoft has Great Pay and Health Benefits. You get to work with technical smart people and get to work with the latest Microsoft software and technologies.

Cons

Horrible review system. Demoralizing to the workforce. Compete and backstab your own coworkers. Everything is great until you get a manager who you are not buddies with.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of stack ranking and meeting the curve. Stop cutting great benefits and getting rid of older employees with years of experience.
