Great large company
Product Unit Manager (Former Employee), Redmond, WAJuly 30, 2014
Pros: good pay, benefits, free soft drinks
Cons: review system was a bit skewed (as has been widely discussed)
I was treated fairly at all times, compensation was excellent, and I really respect the fact that they would match charity giving.

They did seem to suffer a bit from a culture where folks were promoted who were good managers but not leaders and then they in turn tended to promote like kind.

I enjoyed the name recognition, was a bit jealous of Apple – more... and Google and other companies that seemed more nimble, and dreaded the visits to relatives who put me to work cleaning viruses from their systems. – less

An unprofessional organization with people fighting in the halls.
Manager - Senior Manager Market Research (Former Employee), Redmond, WAJuly 28, 2014
Pros: pay
Cons: toxic culture
Literally on my 2nd day on the job two co-workers were having an argument about who through whom under the bus. It evolved into a shouting match. In my first two months I saw more shouting, and complaining and people threatening to tattle tell on another person's boss.

The benefits and pay are nice, but the workplace has a toxic culture.

Reorgs every 90 days
Principal Program Manager Lead (Current Employee), Bellevue, WAJuly 24, 2014
Pros: people there are great. good bonuses and stock options.
Cons: hasty, indecisive management
There's very little opportunity to grow your career when org changes happen every 90 days and you're reporting to someone else. The health benefits are also not much greater than any other company (and it used to be the best in the nation).
