    Doesn't Recommend

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

    Pros

    Challenging work and environment, very capable coworkers

    Cons

    The company encourages a culture of managers and leads publicly reprimanding their reports for technical or performance reasons. Such feedback should be given in a private office or conf room setting rather than in hallways. An aggressive performance culture is great and poor performers can be terminated, but that should be done without humiliating well qualified engineers in front of their colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    An aggressive performance culture is great and poor performers can be terminated, but that should be done without humiliating well qualified engineers in front of their colleagues.
