Overall a nice place to work and settle down

Program Manager II (Current Employee) Hyderābād (India)

ProsGood work culture. Good people and nice policies.

ConsIt takes long time to establish yourself. i.e. to get promotions or decent ratings. they look for consistency and that means you got to be in the company for atleast 3, 4 years before you would get a good rating and thereby good increment and promotions.

Advice to Senior ManagementIts dampening for people who despite performing well in initial year(s), do not get good rating because the consistency factor cannot be there. This de-motivates people who are performing.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great company at crossroads - that is what I like:)

    Mid-line Manager (Current Employee)

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

    Pros: -it is not just work it is life style -access to the market -independence -immense learning opportunities -ability for development -making a change -leader in some areas, contender in others -all up… Cons: -stack ranking even in small teams -outdated HR assesment system -overdone cost management -takes some time to react to market changes -ongoing centralization -political at Redmond -ok, I… Advice to Senior Management: Be more nimble, upgrade assesment system to reflect new world, and as always don't give up ever, but alter the course quicker. Give more… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
