Great Work/Life Balance
I've worked here for 11 years. When I started, I worked for a woman who was formerly the head of a very big group. Looking up in the organization, I saw a few women who were up the management chain (though none other than my boss in my own management chain). Now, there are far fewer, and it isn't clear as to why. On the positive side, the lack of women in leadership has been acknowledged by the top people in my organization, and there is a lot of thought going into what to do and how to change the organization's management from a 40-something-wife-at-home-white boys club like it is now. As for maternity leave, I have found both men and women (and especially men) to be supportive of parental leave. In fact, I've seen male managers be more supportive of taking the full leave (20 weeks) than women managers.
It is extremely competitive with quarterly "Connects" where you share what you did with the value to the company and what you could have done differently. Politics at higher levels - there is an "old boys club" that exists and is very active.
I've worked at the company for 8 years. Microsoft has a wealth of resources for women including social groups and incredible health and child care benefits. The flexibility provided to me to work at varying hours, work from home, etc. is a differentiator for me and allows me to have better work/life balance.
women friendly company...
I have worked there for 17 years. I had major illness and later twins and I have always had support from my managers and co-workers. It's a good role with interesting work and there's nothing to complain about except the terrible traffic to and from work.
