    Pros

    Cutting edge technology. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Stack ranked review system. Constant peer competition, and not collaboration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the review process. Period. It used to be the benefits that lured people to MS. Now they’re comparable to all other big companies. Nothing special about them.

    Current Employee - Senior Director  in  Seattle, WA (US)
    Current Employee - Senior Director in Seattle, WA (US)

    Pros

    Benefits, Technology is top notch, smart people, the people you work with in general, compensation

    Cons

    Senior executive leadership, performance system, stack ranking, mandatory 5% attrition and an additional 10% of ruined careers, breeding a culture of mediocrity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider a change to the COO/CEO and remove the performance system that is leading to the complete fall of your culture. People are leaving and looking to leave and it is happening now.
