A great place to spend a few years or a career.

Program Manager (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

ProsGreat pay, great benefits, many options across plenty of products, unlimited growth potential. It's an exciting time to join the company, many of their technologies are finally converging!

ConsOften multiple teams will be solving a very similar problem at the same time. This results in a re-org or features being entirely abandoned. With that said, things are improving. There is also a lot of competition among peers because the review model used to be entirely relative to your peers. If you did a great job but were on a team full of rock stars, you don't don't get a good review.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great benefits but too stressful

    Program Manager (Current Employee) Redmond, WA

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: The best benefits around: good pay, excellent medical, free drinks,… Cons: Very stressful and hectic; cut throat culture and no room for 'nice guys'. No matter how… Advice to Senior Management: Pay attention to everyone, it seems you pay more attention to and acknowledge those… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

    Lots of opportunities, but a challenging culture.

    Senior Marketing Manager (Former Employee) Redmond, WA

    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: Competitive salaries, lots of movement if you like to change jobs alot. Company is so big and in so many markets and market segments… Cons: I worked there while the employee stack rank and scoring process was still in place. As a people manager and as an individual contributor… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
