Wonderful learning experience. Great place to spend a few years.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

ProsGreat benefits, lots of resources at your disposal. Amazing corporate culture, wonderful opportunity to be among some of the brightest people in United States.

ConsVery stressful. Managers are not professionally trained and do not seem accountable for decisions effecting employees. Long term career paths are not clear.

Advice to Senior ManagementTrain managers, create better long term retention of employees. Give people advancement based on experience as well as performance. Often the employees that take a lot of risk are also the ones that fail.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
