Great material support, poor communicators
Lab Engineer (Current Employee), Seattle, WAMay 16, 2014
Pros: excellent facilities, remote work
Cons: poor communication, lack of human feeling among management and co-workers.
My daily work has been great, as I've been allowed for some time (basically until now) to work mostly remotely from my house, meaning I have a very portable job. I know that this is rare among contractors, so this has been a great thing. Their facilities are second to none. I learned a lot about Windows and the inside culture of such a large company. – more... Management has a lot of improve on, however. They tend to promote people into management who are better served not talking to people, but to computers.

There is a culture of fear and they communicate poorly as a result.

What I liked most was the social aspect of the job when I visited. – less

Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Portland, ORMay 1, 2014
Pros: great benefits, great company name
Cons: management
Microsoft is an excellent company. The company expects you to move for advancement, and if you are grounded where you live, this makes for a really hard decision. Management is very disorganized and lacks leadership.

Program Manager (Former Employee), Redmond, WAApril 11, 2014
At Microsoft the work is both very demanding and rewording. It has been nice to see you’re able to make a divergence, even if you’re a contractor. Having worked in so many different groups (and types of positions) has given me a good view of the whole company.
