    Former Employee - Senior Software Developer in Redmond, WA

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A chance to work with some very bright individuals and if you are lucky to land in the right group,, a chance to work on products that are used by a large population of users.

    Cons

    So many bright individuals in one company, to get ahead many become focused on climbing corporate ladder rather than furthering their engineer career. Overly competitive to the point of being destructive rather than constructive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on developing great engineers by placing more value on the work of good performers.

    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
