Big company = great opportunity to waste great possibilities

Senior Software Development Engineer (Current Employee) Redmond, WA

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

No, I would not 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

Microsoft also highly encourages volunteering outside of work and will… Cons: The review system encourages dog-eat-dog competition, even though the stated culture is teamwork and respect. Your boss and coworkers will throw… Advice to Senior Management: Abandon the current stack rank review model if you really… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
