I've worked here for 10 years. The company is very white male heavy. There is also heavy pressure within the company to advance. It's sort of frowned upon to get into a role and stay there for a long time (like, 3-5 years is usually the max). There is heavy competition for advancement opportunities and its very much a who you know kind of thing.
Microsoft is a bit of an odd duck. It's very difficult to move around in this company because they have taken the good old boy network and institutionalized it. They actually tell you, you have to hobnob and glad-hand the hiring manager for six months to a year before a job opens and then once one opens, you will be at the top of the list. if you don't do this, you will not ever get interviewed for any job. So, forget having the right experience and credentials; those do not matter at all. What matters is hanging out at the bar and having a drink. and yes, that is MUCH more awkward as a woman.
