    Fundamentally change the way projects, roles, and teams are formed, prioritized, and rewarded.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. They're trying. Some teams do well. But the overall system is fundamentally a monoculture.

Microsoft is really making an effort to promote female leaders. Unfortunately, in some areas, the work is not aggressive enough. In others, the promotion of women is so aggressive that there is now--and will continue to me--backlash.

    Overall, the "Redmond bubble" is real. In order to really make a difference with HQ, you must be physically present.

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    None taken

    While I didn't take maternity leave here, I would really like to encourage all women to take the leave that they are granted. With each of my four children, I only took 4 weeks, when I really could have taken 6. There is no extra credit for those extra weeks I gave my employer. Microsoft offers 12 weeks of maternity and I find myself very jealous and really work hard to protect those weeks for my employees (male and female).

In the male-dominated tech world, women either have to work twice as hard or they are put on the "mommy track" . It's hard!

Flexibility isn't the problem for me, but the on the ground culture is competitive for all the wrong reasons, not customer focused enough and not accountable.

    Work culture more in line with the growth mindset that Satya Nadella talks about. I'm really disappointed that most people still behave as if Steve Ballmer were still in charge.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Depends on the work culture you want.

Great benefits, and they are working hard at diversity. The top bosses get that things need to change but there is still a huge undercurrent of people who don't understand what all the fuss is about

The company is dedicated to developing women in their careers through regular women in leadership conferences, "coffee and conversations" events, recommending specific women mentors for women earlier in their career, excellent maternity leave, excellent benefits overall that support work/life balance. I highly recommend Microsoft to other women.

    I can work from home when I need to or work remotely for a week at a time when I need to travel for personal reasons. Employees are also encouraged to work the hours that work best for them. Some people come in early and leave early while others work from home in the morning, come into the office in the afternoon and work later at night.

It is such a huge company that it is hard to know what your experience would be, so I would try to talk to women on the specific team you’re looking to join. It’s a lot better than many companies out there, but that doesn’t mean it’s good.

    Maybe. It’s a better company to work at than I’ve experienced before, but at least on my team, men are taken more seriously than women with the same education and similar experience.

LTs aren't ready with women inclusion strategy and conversation. Though lots of talk...
