Senior Software Development Engineer In Test (SDET) (Former Employee) Redmond, WA

ProsGood benefits, strong infrastructure support, still some good people.

ConsI recently left the company, after over a decade, and wish that I had done it much sooner. There is far too much middle-management, all hoping to get their name in lights, and backstabbing others along the way.

The management structure and the review system both strongly contribute to an inability to innovate, and be truly proud of making a difference in the industry.

Strong benefits aside, there are much, much better places to spend your creative energy, and be equally recompensed. The company used to be known as "MICROSOFT", and now they are simply another company.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice to "management" is to reduce yourself...stop giving yourself top 10% reviews simply because you change project names mid-stream, and find a job that you can truly add value to the industry in.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
