    Former Employee - Marketing Manager in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    I worked at Microsoft full-time

    Pros

    Teamwork, flexibility, working environment, benefits, corporate culture, renewed innovation and focus; some great and iconic brands; well-respected; starting to engage in consumer-centric development and marketing; structured and well thought-out professional development and career planning.

    Cons

    Can be strangely competitive due to opaque performance ranking process that pits staff against one another; consistent unrealistic forecasting leads to wasted time and efforts as teams throw everything at trying to hit impossible targets; long-term strategy is sometimes forsaken for immediate results; attached to the product at the expense of the consumer.

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
