    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer II in Sunnyvale, CA

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

    Pros

    Lots of different jobs
    Great benefits
    Opportunities to impact many users
    Many resources for growth
    Don't have to fear company is going to shut down in a few months

    Cons

    lots of politics that you have to engage in to really get ahead
    review system can be demoralizing -- due to politics
    no matter how great the product, its cool to bash Microsoft. Don't expect the internet world to drool over your work, even if its great

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    review system is a pain, often a politically savvy manager can make a big difference

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
