Current Employee - Senior Program Manager in Seattle, WA (US)

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

Pros

Smartest group of people an any company. Diverse, caring, professional, people do what it takes to get the job done. Not afraid to switch course quickly.

Cons

It is a large company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a way to not be compared to Consumer Companies such as Apple and Google. Enterprise is a completely different market.

    Pros

    Bright folks. Big products. Complex problem spaces.

    Review System. Difficulty understanding promotions. Constant Team vs Team dynamics. Many, many "Type A" folks, all interacting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ditch the review system.
