Pros

Great salary and benefits. Very rewarding work environment for most of the people I know.

Cons

The company used to be filled with the smartest people in the world. Now, not so much.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go back to a 6 month review. The one year cycle is way too long and it's letting the lazy charge at the end for the high review scores. It happens a lot more than you realize. Very disheartening for those of us who want to do a good job and build great products full time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think more about real problems to solve instead of lots of disconnected cool features that seem interesting in a ppt presentation

    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer in Redmond, WA (US)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, great pay & benefits. The management on my team is phenomenal at recognizing the strengths of each individual and giving assignments based on those. I really like being able to work from home when I need. Additionally, I haven't been forced to work nights or weekends once my entire career.

    Cons

    I don't really like living in Redmond, and there aren't too many opportunities to work in other cities if you are a technical engineer.
