Great place to build a career

Human Resources Director (Current Employee)
Redmond, WA

ProsMicrosoft is full of smart, passionate people who want to make a difference. People generally strive to do their best and work hard, which means a lot to me since I care deeply about my work and love being surrounded by people who feel likewise.
The company supports movement and stretch opportunities and if you work hard you can really make a great career and make a difference.

ConsWorkload is pretty high and it can be tough at times to maintain balance, but I don't know that it's any different for any other top global company, especially in this economy.
Decision making is hard to figure out sometimes - at what level is a decision being made, who owns it and is it mandatory once made.

Advice to Senior ManagementGreat product line up and love the focus on the cloud.... we really need to become awesome at collaboration and decision making across businesses to make it happen.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
