    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    it became pretty worse company

    Cons

    hardly anything to manage here

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    they started to cut the costs for providing food at additional work hours and started to cut employee outings..... pretty bad management, started to count even the every penny spent by employee.

    Managers manage numbers not people

    Current Employee - Account Executive in Mississauga, ON (Canada)

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

    Pros

    The Money, the prestige. Sales employees are rewarded generously when this exceed their targets.

    Cons

    Managers understand the Microsoft machine they don't have to have nor do they need to have ANY people skills to attain or be successful at their positions. As a new AE you are required to commit and sign to a number presented to you by your manager. You will receive no training on it's processes or it's products. You will be consistently asked and reviewed on you commitment to retire quota. Asking for help will be rebuked. You must understand Microsoft licensing and contracts to be successful at this position a requirement not listed in their Account Executive Career Opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Formal licensing training must be completed by all prospective applicants before or within the first 60 days of employment. What tools are in place to ensure sales have what they need to have an opportunity to be successful.
