Group Manager (Current Employee)
Charlotte, NC

ProsGood Salary
Great Benefits
Cutting Edge Work

ConsTeam work one sided. Task oriented not result driven. Ideas are not easily introduced and may be dismissed without even being examined. Long hours of tasks with no end solution on many projects that should have more streamline long term solutions. Six Months could be totally wasted on improvement projects.

    Great co-workers, but review process is killing the company

    Scientist (Former Employee)
    Bellevue, WA

    I worked at Microsoft


    Pros: Benefits are great, particularly health care ( makes me feel… Cons: Review process is stupid. It's making the company lose a lot of great talent. It stimulates internal competition to an unhealthy level. Everyone is managing… Advice to Senior Management: CEO, please resign. Balmer lost employee's confidence a long time ago. Make review process really work. Everyone is gaming that system. It's a joke… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
