Former Employee - Product Manager in Mountain View, CA

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

Pros

Lots of talented people to learn from and great training programs for college hires. Excellent company to learn product management. Ideal work/life balance.

Cons

Very risk averse, and a culture of "I" and not "we". Also, a culture of doing 80% or 90% instead of 100%.

Recommends
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO
