I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Diverse like you wouldn't believe, our leaders open to challenge, and Satya has helped give Microsoft a new lease of life. As a graduate hire, I have been given heaps of fantastic opportunity across the business to grow in capability and confidence but has, at the same time, kept me grounded and grateful for those opportunities, quickly reminded if I let individual success go to my head. Since then, I have had the privilege of continuing to lead amazing teams, inflicting true positive transformation for customers, partners and communities.

Cons

HR has a little work to catch up with industry and levelling system is very 90's ... Some people I know have been impacted and stifled in recognition because of this but if you understand key measures of success you can still do well... I would welcome change especially for new incoming graduates

Advice to Management

Revamp HR levelling and graduate progression

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, competitive salary, interesting work. You get to work on projects that everybody has heard of, and know that your work is valuable to millions or billion sof people.

    Cons

    Limited advancement, heavy politics. A late-stage company that can feel like it's lost its way and gotten acquisition-heavy.

    Advice to Management

    Acquisitions have been enormously randomizing for a lot of groups, and have created the general impression that we're throwing good money after bad.
