I have been working at Microsoft as an intern for less than a year

Pros

The company took good care of the interns, even the ones not in the Redmond location. Microsoft had a fun culture, interesting events, and an overall well organized intern program.

Cons

Microsoft is a large company that can be stuck in process and organization, that might slow down work progress and stifle creativity in favor of organized productivity.

    Former Employee - User Experience Lead in Redmond, WA (US)

    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Stability
    Focus on your growth
    Wide range of experiences at your finger tips
    Ability to drive your own career path without leaving the company
    Great people to work with.

    Cons

    It's large and moves slow if your passionate about what your doing. It's hierarchical and you have to be willing to play that game if you want to move up in your career. It can lul you to sleep in your job if you do not pay attention.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your workers. They have fresh insight into something you may have been looking at for to long.

    Great company, but I was in a hostile work environment so left a lot to be desired.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great pay, great people for the most part. Interesting work, fast paced and very diverse. Many perks, great campus and overall a good place to work.

    Cons

    Several people in leadership roles acted like children much of the time. Corporate VP was a loud mouth who had a permanent strain in his arm from patting himself on the back for work other did. GM in my group was so biased that I was amazed at her conduct. I'm glad I'm no longer there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring people that act like little kids during meetings.
