No accountability for management, HR, totally subjective performance reviews which lack documentation

Pros

Good pay and benefits in comparison to other companies, great place if you don't want to be held accountable for the commitments you are supposed to be reviewed against.

Cons

Even with new "One Microsoft" there is no change, management and individuals are still out for themselves, rewards are based upon who you know, and there is no accountability to display "Microsoft Values" If you can ride the system, and deal with the lack of accountability, and unprofessional work environments, and HR protecting managers rather than deal with the real issues, go for it.

Advice to Management

Actually live by company values, hold managers accountable to support their employees equally, have HR actually engage and fix problems in orgs where Managers rule by threatening employees and instilling fear if they provide feedback, and follow through with their threats to move employees out if they do provide feedback - not healthly

    Pros

    You have exposure to the latest technical computer software. Variety of assignments.

    Cons

    White male dominated company. No opportunities for other non-white. Old school boy attitude. They hire you only if they can use you to get an assignment. They really dont value your experience or skills. Only concerned about getting an assignment.
