    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Une structure puissante et riche qui donne de nombreux moyens pour vendre et supporter les équipes de vente

    Cons

    Une organisation difficile à comprendre avec des équipes virtualisées sur des domains technologiques loin des clients. Difficile de gérer une carrière au long terme car les "évolutions" sont majoritairement horizontale. Malgré de très bonnes évaluations annuelles depuis 5 ans et un support de mes responsables, impossible de passer un cran au-dessus...

    Advice to Management

    Simplifiez les processus internes et l'organisation (Microsoft Services)

  8. "Une formation du 1er ordre"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Italien in Montreal, QC

    I worked at Microsoft full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Microsoft offre des méthodes, des outils et un cadre de travail exemplaire. Le niveau général est très élevé et cela tire littéralement les collaborateurs vers le haut. Le sentiment d'appartenir à un groupe international est fort et ses innovations dans le domaines B2B sont incontournables.

    Cons

    Le niveau général est très élevé et cela pose rapidement des problèmes d'évolution. Les postes de middle managers sont rares, donc précieux. La boîte attire également beaucoup de talents et paie très bien. Microsoft préfèrera donc des recrutements externes à la promotion interne. Les outils RH sont très bien conçus, à tel point qu'ils en deviennent une obsession pour bcp de collaborateurs (level, compa-ratio, etc.).
