Current Employee - Software Development Engineer In Test (SDET) in Seattle, WA

I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

+ Work life balance
+ Owns entire technology stack

Cons

- Promotion depends on political climate of your team/org
- Teams fight turf war to keep their political capital (visibility of features, etc.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Thin out the bureaucracy. Have less meaningless meanings. Be more data driven, not political driven.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Compensation, mobility, training opportunities, benefits

    Cons

    Engineers are worshiped - everyone else, not so much
    VERY political
    Swagger is rewarded; if you can't toot your own horn, you won't get very far here
