Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Fort Lauderdale, FL
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Fort Lauderdale, FL

I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than a year)

Pros

This applies to the LATAM office only (Fort Lauderdale): flexible working schedule and location. Great opportunity to learn new technologies and meet lots of professionals in different areas.

Cons

This applies to the LATAM office only (Fort Lauderdale). Very poor on-boarding process that makes employees feel unwelcomed or undervalued.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep an eye on groups that change or replace contract employees (v-dash) too often. There are low-level managers with a very, very poor attitude towards team members.

    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

    There are lots of opportunities to explore within the same company; each group works like a separate company, which is good if you want to experiment with different technologies.

    Cons

    There are lots of politics. You will need to learn to navigate through it, or to find a way to avoid it altogether. People that get review are not only the brightest, but also the ones that can best communicate their talent/success.

    Toxic employee performance system

    Former Employee - Senior Engineer Service Engineer in Redmond, WA
    Former Employee - Senior Engineer Service Engineer in Redmond, WA

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and wide range of work, large campus setting

    Cons

    Beware of the incredibly toxic employee performance system. Work Life balance is seriously out of whack, with many after hour and weekend work required to tread water. Slowly moving away from individual offices to more open concept.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The new CEO should come from the outside and focus on improving the employee performance review and getting rid of Lisa Brummel.
