Web Art Director (Current Employee), Redmond, WAFebruary 6, 2015
Great company, culture is challenging, lots of opportunities but its more about who you know, than what you know.

I highly recommend working at Microsoft, you will learn and grow in a culture that can be both energizing and frustrating depending on the day.

Great Company culture, great benefits and great people
Credit Manager (Former Employee), Reno, NVFebruary 5, 2015
Pros: great company values, great people and great benefits
Cons: the job is demanding and challenging but consequently a great place to learn and grow.
Microsoft is a company that really cares and invests in its employees and the community. Every day was a learning curve and a new different great adventure. My colleagues and management were absolutely fantastic! Cross-group collaboration is one of the greatest competencies required to be successful in Microsoft and people genuinely takes pride in helping each other succeeding.

High-pressure environment, good compensation
Director, Sales Marketing (Former Employee), redmond, WAFebruary 5, 2015
Pros: compensation, intelligent people, driven culture
Cons: internal politics, hierarchical decision-making
Scale of organization, and company culture of high achievement and measureable results, offers the opportunity to take on big challenges.

Compensation plan, which has been undergoing changes in recent years, has warped internal company processes to emphasize individual achievement (or "hero" culture) over team dynamics.

SENIOR PROGRAM MANAGER (Former Employee), redmond, waFebruary 4, 2015
Pros: flexibility
Cons: review culture
I worked at Microsoft for 18 years. Like anything else that lasts for 18 years, there were good days and bad days. In the end, Microsoft was a good fit for me. It allowed me to pursue my passions, demonstrate my capabilities, be creative, learn, and grow in all aspects of my career.

The hardest day I ever had at Microsoft was due to employee issues. The best day I ever had was because of the impact I had with an employee.

Microsoft is all about team work and a collaborative environment. A work life balance isn't just valued, it is expected of each employee. Employees are given the opportunities to excel in their job while maintaining a relaxed working environment and enjoying their time away from the office.

Consumer Product Advisor (Current Employee), Los AngelesFebruary 1, 2015
This is such an amazing company to work for. The culture here is not simply about selling a product or service but pairing people and businesses with the types of products that suit their specific needs. They are dedicated to work/life balance and have some of the most amazing benefit packages, even for part time employees.

This is a great company to work for
