Microsoft

Senior Program Manager (Former Employee)
Redmond, WA

I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 8 years

Prosstrong values, smart people - great benefits, location and pay.

ConsLack of innovation due to dysfunctional management review system. Tablet PC is an example of innovative being undermined by internal politics. Same with XBOX neglecting a Blueray player but the real problem is the over engineering and lack of vision for Office and Windows.

Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage teams to work together rather than compete against each other.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
