    Former Employee - Consulting  in  Redmond, WA
    Former Employee - Consulting in Redmond, WA

    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    1. Great worldwide community of (mostly) connected thought leaders in a wide range of areas
    2. Progressive HR and career/learning management
    3. Respectful environment
    4. Lots of different opportunities if you're game

    Cons

    1. Politics - tougher to advance if not at HQ
    2. You get pulled in a LOT of directions
    3. Internal competition and ranking system (now remedied, I believe)
    4. Reporting structures too flat in places
    5. Too scorecard vs. "do the right thing" focused
    6. Hard to develop as a manager (they like to keep you as a individual contributor)
    7. Slow career development for some roles

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on better people management and rewarding off scorecard efforts.
    Develop people faster.
    Don't do marketing out of Redmond. The perception of the company is way different outside the hive.
