Great culture and innumerable opportunities!!

Curriculum Manager (Current Employee)
Redmond, WA (US)

I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 10 years

ProsAmazing environment, great benefits, smart folks, endless opportunities, technology heaven!!

ConsThe stack ranking system puts unnecessary pressure.
Some jobs appear redundant.
Too many office moves seem wasteful.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf there was a good performance measurement system then a forced stack ranking wouldn't be necessary. Poor performers would be fired and good performers wouldn't be forced out of their jobs.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
