Smart people, big egos

Project Manager (Former Employee) Redmond, WA

ProsSome of the smartest people you will meet. Good benefits, casual environment, and lots of difficult challenges (which I enjoy). Great offices. Lot's of activities going on and a connection to a lot of departments is possible.

ConsBig egos. I was a contractor and there were certain people who would (seriously) look at my orange badge (full timers have blue badges) and act like I was somehow less intelligent. Not cool. There is definitely a very cutthroat culture where people are interested in their own careers - maybe at your expense. Highly political environment. Since I was a contractor, this was not a big deal. Full time employees who aren't doing a great job can move to another department, continuing the mediocrity.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time


    Pros: Good technology. Good process to develop technology. Good benefits. Cons: Very bad product planning.
