Microsoft Employee Review

Great company but your experience depends on the manager

The senior management has the right intent. However, since it's a very big company an individual experience depends a lot on one's manager. If the dynamics of one's group is highly political, one can't advance without playing that game. Otherwise, it's a good company with interesting problems to solve.

Pros

stability, stock, work

Cons

politics, managers can make or break your career

Same role

Good culture and emphasis on customer but not at the cost of employee

It is a good place to work those who want a stress-free life. Not much office politics I have observed.People around are supportive and what's different here is that performance evaluation include how someone is helping others and building on others' ideas. Overall, this culture reduces competition and make people work as a team to large extent. Work-Life balance and employee mental wellbeing is given a decent priority as well.Compensation is decent but not very great. especially the annual hikes could be better

Pros

Good campus and facilities, compensation and benefits. work-life balance is the best

Cons

progress will be slow with a bleak learning curve. work will be boring in many teams
