"Great people, extremely competetive"

Current Employee - Software Development Engineer II in Redmond, WA
Current Employee - Software Development Engineer II in Redmond, WA
Recommends
Approves of CEO

Pros

Lots of brilliant people around
Lots of problems to work on
Wide array of technogies
The management is generally good and fair in assessing people in performance reviews. I like the review and evalutation system at the company and the focus on getting things done.

Cons

The competetion hampers some information flow. An attitude for getting things done and strong interpersonal skills are as important for growth as technical skills. This can be viewed either as a pro or a con depending on who you are.
