Glassdoor is your free inside look at Microsoft reviews and ratings — including employee satisfaction and approval rating for Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. All reviews posted anonymously by Microsoft employees.
Current Employee – been working at Microsoft
Pros – High salary, cool technology, genius co-workers, good work/life balance, great work conditions (my own office, 2-3 monitors, multiple top-of-the-line development machines, etc.). Health benefits are AWESOME*!
*for the next 2 years
Cons – Work/life balance is highly variable from one team to the next. Seattle is REALLY expensive, so the starting salary is deceptively low if you hope to ever own a home here. A lot of co-workers are really caught up in having money and owning things (lots of BMW's, Porsches, etc.) which might not be your thing.
Advice to Senior Management – DON'T REDUCE HEALTH INSURANCE!!!
