Some great people. Some below avg. Very much depends on the group. Company DNA holding it back.

Senior Program Manager (Former Employee)
Redmond, WA

ProsLeadership position (in some products), shaping the industry. Reach the whole world with your innovation

ConsThe worse internal office politics one can expect. Managers that did something great years ago and are leading products they have no idea how to push forward.

Advice to Senior ManagementBuy companies like hell and don't merge then back to Redmond. Skype is a great exapmle.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    At some points challenge, but gets flat after sometime

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

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


    Pros: good work life balance People always willing to help Cons: Company not moving fast enough, most of the time doing catchup New teams are usually good, old ones mostly code… Advice to Senior Management: Remove intra company interview. This discourages new grads from joining, as every time you're tired of what you're… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
