Featured Review

Current Contractor - Senior Administrative Assistant

I have been working at Microsoft for more than a year

Pros

inclusive environment, very nice and extremely brilliant people. Lot's of positive initiatives to meet team and organizational goals, collaborative environment, very relaxed yet fostering culture

Cons

I am on a contract that is ending soon. That's the only con I can think of.

Advice to Management

My team's management is excellent. Keep up the good and hard work!!

Former Employee - Marketing Manager

I worked at Google full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Positive, challenging work environment that gives employees ability to continue to grow into current and future roles across functions.

Cons

Very few cons. The culture caters to type-A personalities, so prepare to be challenged. Only weakness I saw over the course of 10+ years is at times, poor management of under-performers. Google... tended to be soft with folks that didn't perform well. They wouldn't be promoted, but they also wouldn't be let go.
