Principal Test Manager (Current Employee)
Redmond, WA

ProsAble to work on well established software used worldwide or on small startup projects yet to be used by anyone. Opportunity to shift career across technologies and functional disciplines and limited only by your own imagination and drive. Each day you learn something new about and from one of your amazing coworkers from all over the world.

ConsOutside perception within the industry about what Microsoft is all about.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep working to enable the fantastic folks that work with and around you and continue to celebrate innovation and delivery of high value customer scenarios. Demand the type of continuous improvement from each of the divisions that we all expect and let our customers know the range of scenarios that we can light up for them and that we care about their business.

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