Best benefits package overall in the market. Smartest people you will ever work on. Access to technology and information like no other company. Challenging environment, big learning opportunities, growth, career.
Your success depends how good your manager is. There are not many good selection of managers at times, sometime politics and cultures get in the mix to select someone they should not to be a manager (diversity plays a big role on selection). Bad managers will see you as a number in their spreadsheet, not care on your career, growth or potential.
Advice to Management
People that should not be, or not have the right skills to be managers, should not be allowed to get there just because HR pressure to keep a diverse environment is there. The success on an employee resides on the manager, and is very rare when an employee hired for this company is not successful caused by his mistakes or the lack of actions; is usually bad or complete lack of leadership by his/her manager.Microsoft2013-10-08
