"This was a great team to work with - they respected my input, gave me useful feedback, and gave me autonomy without isolation. Also, it was an environment where you could relax and be yourself; people were comfortable with each other's quirks and habits, and I really liked my coworkers, not just liked working with them. The best thing, though, was my boss, who was great to have in your corner; she was very good at getting people to work together and getting them what they needed when they needed it."

"Microsoft is a fantastic company - great vision, great benefits, smart people. But there is a corporate hierarchy that gets in the way of truly making a difference until you reach higher levels - this is a very top down driven organization."

"Great company, but very competitive on the inside. Difficult to develop a long term career. Microsoft is interested on moving people and hiring younger talent each year. A lot of time focused on internal stuff. The company moves fast but still slower than what is really needed. Joined 1993 - recently left."

"I worked for Nokia for over one year. Excellent environment and compensation. Once Nokia's mobile division was acquired by Microsoft I only had the chance to experience it for a short time. It felt as a very different company culture though."
