    Current Employee - Senior Software Development Engineer in Redmond, WA
    Current Employee - Senior Software Development Engineer in Redmond, WA

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lots of smart and nice people. Lots of new stuff to learn. Opportunity to have a big impact. Good salaries.

    Cons

    Fish starts to rot from its head. There are good teams - but most are in a dismal state, due to management (3 levels of hierarchy away from you) not having a clue about what's going on - or not even caring about it due to some twisted short-sighted incentive they have.

    Pros

    Stable company, lots of smart people, decent rewards. I've had the opportunity to learn a lot here.

    Cons

    People are pitted against one another, the culture is toxic, some people are rewarded waaaaaay too much for being nothing more than political douchebags. Saying we should "work together" is really just lip service. No one takes responsibility and holds themselves accountable, from the top down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. They don't want advice.
