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

Pros

Good work life balance. Opportunity to work on products that impacts millions of customers.

Cons

Process oriented and management is not technical enough.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote people with technical skills . Most of them are getting promoted just because of their communication skills.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great local teams! Amazing proactiveness and willingness for cooperation on operational level in the region. Great training opportunities! Compensation is above average.

    Cons

    Higher level management in customer service does not put focus on cooperation with local business stakeholders. All the new programs are comming from US.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more focus on business engagement. Support can be more effective if cooperates with local business.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Loved the people, the benefits, and the job! I enjoyed the flexibility to work from home and come into the office when necessary. It was refreshing to work for a large, stable company after coming from several start-ups that were not as sucessful.

    Cons

    There can be excessive bureaucracy that comes with working for a large company. Management can be limited in their authority to "make things happen" in some situations. The work environment is very flexible and extremely positive.
