Sr. Consultant (Former Employee), Reston, VAJanuary 3, 2014
I learned that the stack ranking system of management is the best way to get employees to hate one another. They have since changed from this barbaric practice and I would highly recommend them as a great company.

Program Manager II - Service Continuity Management (Former Employee), Redmond WADecember 26, 2013
Pros: great learning environment
Cons: not much in the way of work-life balance
From my experience Microsoft Management states that they want all employees to have a good work/life balance but their actions to date do not support the statements. Employees quite often get penalized for not working 60-80 hours a week as that is what Management deems as the norm. While employees may be able to get their jobs done in 40, perception – more... is that they aren't doing a good job unless they live at their desk 24/7. Happy they decided to do away with "Stack Ranking" since I have seen many very good employees get canned because their peers know more managers than they do. – less

Technical Advisor (Former Employee), Mission Viejo, CADecember 17, 2013
Everyone is very welcoming when you get hired on and always eager to help you improve. For a Technical advisor a typical day is either being an Answer Desk Tech or Back of House Tech. The Answer Desk Tech will assist customer that come in with computer problems and give them the best advice on how to fix the problem or replace the PC. The Back Of House – more... tech's responsibility is to repair the PC that the customer has left. – less
