    Work with great people but be prepared to endure absurd bureaucracy and internally wasted time.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits are stellar and you can advance if you play the politics based on your management chain's rules.

    Cons

    Way too much focus on internally-facing activities that don't benefit customers, increase revenue or help you beat competitors

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Quite an important role
    Great policies
    Good salary

    Cons

    Lot of politics
    Lot of excel sheets floating around which need to be filled time and again
    Mostly internal focused instead of focusing on the customer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Apart from the field, other teams also need to engage with customers to understand pulse of the customer. A lot of the reviews tend to be theoretical in nature

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
