Former Employee - Senior Program Manager in Redmond, WA
Former Employee - Senior Program Manager in Redmond, WA

I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great projects, still plenty of innovation, execution people continue to be a premium
Compensation including benefits was more than fair for my responsibilities

Cons

Politics, performance review process broke that requires you be a brand manager of your work
Given the complexity of organization structure, can be tough to drive collaboration and results

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn and apply servant and situational leadership techniques, culture tends to stifle creativity and innovation since it's a bit of a make my director manager happy on up the chain

Recommends

No opinion of CEO
