On the up and up

Senior Program Manager (Current Employee) Redmond, WA (US)

ProsLeadership is turning the company ship and moving fast. Many are excited since MS used to be at the top of the world and no more. But the fire and been lit under their asses and it's movin'. Kinect, Windows 8, Surface, Pixel Perfect, all these products are a start to change the world and the 800 lbs gorilla is going to make a difference again.

ConsOnly join the Windows, Xbox, and Phone teams. Few other teams are promoting. Join one of the teams that Microsoft is seriously betting on for the long term of the company. The other teams are not given as much priority or budget for growth and promos.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Rich company with big ambition - but the complexity of the company gets in it's way

    Principal Consultant (Current Employee) Redmond, WA (US)

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 10 years


    Pros: smart people, lots of resources, global ambition, some very good… Cons: the complexity of the model driving software and services means people… Advice to Senior Management: allow free thinking - and encourage folks to move across… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
