Lots of opportunities, but a challenging culture.

Senior Marketing Manager (Former Employee) Redmond, WA

ProsCompetitive salaries, lots of movement if you like to change jobs alot. Company is so big and in so many markets and market segments just about every job you would ever want exists somewhere at the company. Employee review process, goal setting process and career growth process are very formalized.

ConsI worked there while the employee stack rank and scoring process was still in place. As a people manager and as an individual contributor I had both positive and negative experiences with the process. Top performers were rewarded, but I was also required to make decisions which I didn't think were fair to my staff.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Microsoft has no loyalty

    Senior Program Manager (Former Employee) Redmond, WA

    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros: The salary is good and you get a lot of discounts/perks.… Cons: Work/life balance is VERY hard to come by and some groups are in constant fire drill mode.… Advice to Senior Management: Eliminate the review "curve". If someone has a team… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
