I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

stability, good work life balance, depending on which team you work on you can get to work on interesting stuff.

the review system is a mess. you need to spend a lot of time telling people about the work you have done in order to be rewarded. the salary is somewhat lower than industry average in Seattle area.

Advice to Management

fix the review system.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great products and services in so many places can make it a very exciting place to be. Training, benefits, PTO a plus.

    Cons

    Navigating such a large company can be a challenge. Some great leaders, but also so many mediocre managers who were promoted based on individual contributor successes.

    Advice to Management

    Old cowboy "me first" culture prevails - hoping new leadership will help create the collaborative culture needed to succeed.


  2. "Brief but exciting"
