Manager Owns Your Career

Technical Support Engineer (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

ProsMicrosoft 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.

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 10 years


    Pros: When in sales or business development it is great to work for a recognized brand. I have never had problems getting meetings… Cons: Highly political and lots of people spending most of their time looking good instead of actually getting work done. The infamous rating system really… Advice to Senior Management: 1) Simplify the rating system to three ratings. We all know who the 1s are and we typically also know who the 5s are.… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
