Great but too many wannabe managers

Software Development Engineer II (Current Employee)
Redmond, WA

ProsGreat technical challenges
Good work life balance
Great perks and amenities
Good pay
Love the offices instead of cubicles

ConsToo many managers and people who want to be one
One person does all the work and has probably 2to 3 people managing them
If you are lucky you will have a good manager who protects you from PMs and others.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
