Current Employee - Software Development Engineer In Test (SDET) II in Redmond, WA

I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

When you have a good team and a great manager, one of the best places to work in the world. Amazing benefits and job security. There are many challenging products, and with the right teams, great recognition.

Cons

If you have a poor team, or a poor manager, things can be rough. Slow promotions, mediocre reviews, favoritism, the grind. all of the worst things of software development.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find people who are dedicated to understanding who their employees are what drives them, and cultivating them. Do not force someone into a position due to business needs. More good people have left MSFT due to management than due to better oppertunities

    Very good except two things: weather of Redmond and absence of the manager for 3 weeks out of my 12 weeks internship.
