Great benefits, too much politics

Software Engineer II (Current Employee) Redmond, WA

ProsGreat benefits, good work life balance, interesting projects, very good mobility within company, good growth opportunities, competent people in general.

ConsSalary and bonus a little below average, too much politics involved in annual performance review and hard to collaborate and work across teams.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
