"Great place to work. Loved working there. Many opportunities so long as you know your stuff and put in the work and time. They are always looking for ways to improve and give back to the community. Good compilation for what you are asked to do and the benefits are second to none. They even offer medical benefits to part time employees. Everyone there is like family and treated each other with respect. If you ever have a concern or suggestion the management's doors are always open."

"Not a place to work if you want a long term career. The environment is set up so that people are placed against one another. Management is ineffective at providing growth."

Microsoft Employee

"I worked for 8 years at Microsoft and found it very rewarding. The pay and benefits were second to none although the internal politics were sometimes difficult to navigate. Many times when recruiting people I would say the good thing about Microsoft is that it has a lot of money, and the bad thing about Microsoft is that it has a lot of money. Too many competing priorities, VP level people are indecisive."

"I've worked in Microsoft as a contracted product manager for about six months. Organization is huge and the product/services you work on could have significant relationship with many other product/services within the organization. It requires a good understanding about many other teams/products/services within the organization to be able to move quickly."
