I worked at Microsoft

Pros

Working at Microsoft gives great benefits, a great work atmosphere, and great technology to work on in a wonderful climate.

Cons

Being a large company could present downsides against innovation and having power in expressing your ideas. Microsoft does a lot to address solutions to overcoming its big company atmosphere.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Microsoft has great products but they are sometimes not marketed well. Much has been done in this area over the past years, but this work could be continued.

    I have been working at Microsoft

    Pros

    Work life balance was great... They never forced you to work overtime... 40 hour work week was all that was needed and it was not held against you for promotions.

    Cons

    Commute to NYC was brutal during rush hour both ways. Recommend taking the train. Some senior managers are not that knowledgeable about all aspects of who they manage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hopefully management can read this right now. I hope they get smarter because they are really ignorant to the needs of lower level associates.
