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

    Pros

    Outstanding Cadillac benefit plans. Stock ownership for all employees from day one. Great earnings potential. Fantastic facilities with 5 star dining and free vending machines in break rooms. Very professional atmosphere with high quality coworkers.

    Cons

    Management style. Microsoft has a management style that I felt discouraged top performance. High priority is placed on sales forecasting to the point that I spent 65% of my time each week in forecast spread sheets and forecast reviews with management. The culture set by management is also a throw each other under the bus culture. Typically sales were performed by sales teams of various Product Specialist Technical Sales...

    Advice to Management

    Streamline and simplify the sales forecasting process and only requires once every two to four weeks. We would often be asked to update our forecast on almost a daily basis. Although I was a very successful award winning rep, while working for another company I once made a mistake that caused us to loose a fairly sizable sale. The Executive I was working under took the blame with upper management and protected my back....

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Seriously don't know what to write here

    Cons

    Really strange/bad atmosphere, extreme competition amongst employees in the same team (not the good kind, the kind where you'd rather not come to work in the morning; seems like a deliberate management methodology), people generally superficial, self-centered and arrogant, I think they deliberately hire malignant narcissists into directorate and higher management positions to keep up that toxic culture (seems to be working...

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good work conditions, positive working environment, great colleagues, smart managers. Motivating remuneration and bonus model. Additional benefits.

    Cons

    If you want to build carrer within the company you must be extremely proactive and pushing what can contravene with persons mentality. That's why very often not the smartest and most skilled people are recognized and promoted but the most visible ones.

    Advice to Management

    To be more flexibe and not only blindly follow to all the corporation standards.
