Microsoft is a big company, with pockets of greatness and pockets of sadness to found

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsMicrosoft allows an individual to have a career maintained with one company because there are so many technologies to work with, and numerous organizations as well.

ConsPolicies around performance review are severly antiquated and do not have concrete, measurable goals that are guaranteed to further your career.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of any type of labels altogether (e.g. level 65, contribution rating, job title, etc..). For commitments, have 2 - achived and didn't achieve. Reward greatness on a case by case basis. This will help people focus on their job and ignore distractions like who got what.

As in any large corporate, there are many different… Cons: Perhaps with the downturn of the economy, large and small layoffs, the company atmosphere has changed. There used to be a mission and vision… Advice to Senior Management: People are the company's greatest investment. Stop promoting employees… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
