    Current Employee - Delivery Manager in Redmond, WA

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

    Pros

    Technology stack, smart people, ability to see the efforts of the company applied on a global scale and benefiting all nations.

    Cons

    The culture is about dominating others for personal gain. If you want to see bullies push around smart people who care, this is the place for you. It is encouraged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being superficial and decide if you are able to credit the individuals that worked for the success you claim as your own.

    I have been working at Microsoft

    Pros

    * now (finally) getting a fire in the belly to break old traditions and go for innovation. Great time to ride this tide and get great stuff done..
    * standard (for top-end software companies) stuff like - flexible hours (no one cares if the work gets done).. fair health care etc

    Cons

    compensation lower end.. review process is changing, dont know what it will be like.. suspense there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    relentlessly pursue innovation., remove mid-level fat (too many managers, and managers of managers..)

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO
