A company that takes care of its employees. Every team/org is very different so YMMV.

    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer II in Cambridge, MA

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Microsoft has lots of money and decent benefits. Some of the middle management is OK.

    Cons

    If you are coming from a top engineering school, and really know software, this is not the place for you. I felt like after I graduated from MIT that I went back to elementary school when I started working at Microsoft. Most of the software engineers here have no clue and the office politics are out of control, so you spend more time defending turf than coding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider promoting the talented software engineers rather than harassing them.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
