Software Developer in Seattle:
Pros: The amount spent on infrastructure is phenomenal
Cons: Not much collaboration at all. Although there are a lot of smart people working there, they're not making a lot of interesting or high-quality things.
"Great Opportunity for Accelerated Career Growth."
Software Engineer in Redmond:
Pros: I feel that I have a lot of autonomy in choosing when and how I get my work done. I feel appreciated and that the work I do has a significant impact. Microsoft is a great place to start your career, at least provided that you find a solid team. Benefits are amazing, but vacation time could be more flexible. Overall, I think it is a great place to start a career in building software!
Cons: Bureaucracy, legacy code, and weird quirks in test infrastructure. Sometimes management lacks transparency on big decisions that are being made.
"Stable and reputable job at Microsoft."
Pros: I like the pay, the benefits, the flexible schedule and the diverse opportunities that can be found here.
Cons: It's a slow moving company, you have to pay for your own food, no free massages.
"Helping Custoemers Succeed = Greater Job Satisfaction."
Solutions Architect in Novato:
Pros: I dont' have to get bogged down in competitive product discussions. Its all about digital transformation to the cloud. Not just moving the problem but leveraging the economics, flexibility and scale of the public cloud.
Cons: Sometimes its hard to understand the subjective bonus at years end since there is no magic formula like sales commission.
