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

I have been working at Microsoft as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

There is almost limitless opportunity to learn technology and advance with some of the brightest people in the technology industry today.

Cons

Depending on the division you're in, you could be stuck with middle management that unfortunately has been around too long and no longer have a passion to see their team excel and therefore you live under that shadow.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of middle management that have been around too long. Seek fresh leadership that cultivates morale and ups the motivation of each team.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great work culture with constant growth in needed areas. Nimble for its size.

    Cons

    Leadership of mostly women seriously inhibits success as a male.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire the right person for the role, not the candidate that will help you hit your minority numbers.
