    I have been working at Microsoft full-time

    Pros

    Fascinating space to work in. A lot of flexibility around roles, people in the company have a lot of time for you if you ask for it. Well compensated and genuine work flexibility. Amazing learning culture

    Cons

    Upskilling and personal development was a little more self-driven - huge repository of resources and training programs though. Workplace flexibility means a lot of people working from home/offsite. Trade off is less of a workplace culture and social life

    Advice to Management

    More events or programs to connect people in the business to each other

      I worked at Microsoft full-time

      Pros

      Amazing company from a global perspective with a winning Vision & Products

      Cons

      Local office sales management style centres on micromanagement and bullying and is extremely toxic and political.

      Advice to Management

      Carefully examine managers with long tenure - it will be very hard to detect toxic behaviour on the surface as individuals won’t speak up due to fear of retaliation.
