Best Company I have worked for.

Senior Program Manager (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA (US)

I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 5 years

ProsSmartest group of people an any company. Diverse, caring, professional, people do what it takes to get the job done. Not afraid to switch course quickly.

ConsIt is a large company.

Advice to Senior ManagementFind a way to not be compared to Consumer Companies such as Apple and Google. Enterprise is a completely different market.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
