    Former Employee - Program Manager II in Redmond, WA

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

    Pros

    The company has a lot of smart people
    Good products
    Good exposure to technology that is used by millions

    Cons

    Very type A and self absorbed organization
    Stack ranking in HR is really a de-motivator
    Products developed are still not designed with the end user in mind - they cater to the Engineers that develop the products, SI. Admins, IT staff ...not the end user

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add more diversity of personality types not just nationalities
