Great innovative and hard working people

Senior User Experience Designer (Former Employee)
Redmond, WA

ProsVery tenatious people and aggressive goals (depends on your group) so the fire is always burning. The benefits are amazing as the employee and family are really taken care of. The campus is beautiful and natural, has easy parking, as well as wonderful cafeterias. There is much potential to move within the company.

ConsDepending on the group you work for the work/life balance can get really out of balance. Politics can slow down progress or innovation. The rating system put peers against each other which was not good but this system was removed this year.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
