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.

ConsFish 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
