Great place

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

I have been working at Microsoft

Pros- Challenging work & cool projects
- Working with some of the smartest people on the planet
- Your work will be used by millions of people
- Great pay & perks (proclub, connector bus, best medical coverage on the planet)

Cons- Long hours
- Forced curve (20/70/10) is not good for a high performance & highly talented team where everyone kick butts, but one person needs to be last and get labeled the bottom 10%
- not all teams are great... if you landed with a bad team or manager, don't let it get to you, do your best, keep a good attitude, wait it out, and find a better team that suits you (there are plenty)

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing the right things like: windows 7, bing, office and servers (sql, exchange, sharepoint)
Get windows mobile 7 out

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
