    I have been working at Microsoft (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Geweldige sfeer onder de collega's, mooi gebouw met verschilende werkstijlen wat betreft ruimtes en faciliteiten, voorloper en uitvinder van 'het nieuwe werken', het salaris is boven gemiddeld, kantine, bereikbaarheid

    Cons

    Voor zover bij mij bekend is zijn er geen minpunten aan het werk bij Microsoft. Wellicht de relatief kleine kans op doorgroeimogelijkheden.

    Advice to Management

    Als het management zijn taken op dezelfde manier als voorheen uitvoert, dan kan er weinig fout gaan. Tot nu toe mijn favoriete werkgever

    Pros

    Great team with a really understanding manager A lot of autonomy along constant constructive feedback Food was pretty good Friendly culture Coworkers much older than me (which is both good and bad) No need to stay late if you consistently get the job done

    Cons

    Redmond sucks - it's boring and the weather is bad It can be hard to get noticed in such a big company Pay is OK but not great, especially compared to recent Silicon Valley companies Middle management is good, but some of the upper level decisions are questionable

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring/promoting great managers

    I worked at Microsoft as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment, reallocation was fully funded and visa was sponsored ( moved from NZ ).

    Cons

    Minimal chance to move around as an intern (ie change projects). However not really expected to be able to as an intern, so not so bad.

    Advice to Management

    Create more internship opportunities, Microsoft was one of the best internships I've done, and would be great to see more people get the same chance I did.
