Lots of opportunities, so keep moving

Product Manager (Former Employee) Redmond, WA

ProsA challenging, interesting, mostly enjoyable place to work.
Great work-live balance
Tons of resources to enable you to do what you need to do for your business
Can make positive impact on people's lives through citizenship programs
BUT:
You must manage your career - no one else will
Don't stay in one place too long, or you lose relevance
Treat each job like a project, and move on once you've achieved your goals in role

ConsWasteful spending and lack of accountability
Many projects seem to be career enhancing as opposed to adding company value
Competitive review system doesn't promote collaboration or long term thinking

Advice to Senior ManagementReward the right behaviors - work that results in long term value for the company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
