    Current Employee - Senior Product Manager in Redmond, WA (US)

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is a lot of roles - but it also means to get a very rounded experience you would have to do different roles - but you can do them across different teams - so life stays interesting

    Cons

    if Promos and pay are you thing - this is not a fast paced young company - so temper expectations

    Current Employee - Program Manager in Redmond, WA (US)
    Current Employee - Program Manager in Redmond, WA (US)

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    A lot of variety in the things you can do, this compay had hundreds of teams working on hundreds of different products & services from healthcare to education to automotive to games. The fun never stops.

    Cons

    A large company means things flow top down, means a lot of teams to coordinate with, means cost cutting, means beaurocracy and less autonomy. There is still the old-boys club mentality though it is slowly changing. Not very many women at the top, especially in engineering.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    telecommuting is the future of tomorow's workplace, and a great way to save.
