    I worked at Microsoft full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Depending on which team you are part of, the benefits are great. Along with good pay, work is pre-planned and you can work from home without any issues. Some of the colleagues could be really good at their work and are a great source for future references/networking.

    Cons

    Poor implementation of anti-harassment policy and rampant bro-culture.

    I was falsely accused by my manager to show his support to a male colleague. As I proved my innocence, the manager along with senior HR retaliated by applying a PIP. This was within 2 weeks of filing an HR inquiry. Post which, I reached out to the ethics committee but they refused by saying it is outside their scope and the request for the enquiry will be forwarded to the respective committee.

    I resigned soon after.

    Advice to Management

    Create accountability across all levels.

    It's not enough to just send out emails or set sexual harassment committees. My country doesn't have workplace harassment law. So it was a difficult decision but I decided not to pursue a legal case. It's important that teams based outside of USA are given due importance and cases of harassment are dealt by people who can't be influenced.

    In my case, the sexual harassment committee HR were involved and verbally told me to accept all the accusations charges so they can calm my manager.

    Also, all senior people in the leadership (male) never came forward even at the peak of harassment as my manager is at an extremely senior level leaving me with no option other than to resign.
