It's a good place to work, but like any other tech company, you have to be aggressive and sometimes things are unfair the higher you go.

You need to be very assertive to borderline aggressive to be noticed as someone who has impact, if aren't seen as having impact you won't progress and will eventually be managed out. If you're looking for a promotion, it is expected that you're working at the level of the promotion before you're considered a candidate.

    The hours are flexible but the workload can be heavy so you're still squeezing in the 50 hours of work, but you can decide if you do it at 10am or midnight.

I agree with other women's reviews that you're manager impacts 95% of your experience and review. Although the amount of effort that I put into my job has remained the same over the last 10 years, my reviews have varied wildly depending on whether my manager liked me or not. The first five years I regularly got feedback that I was too abrasive, despite seeing men never get this feedback. I landed under a manager of that saw no value in my skills and that was like hell for two years. But other years I've had managers that really liked me and I've been a top former. Honestly it's a crapshoot. The maternity leave is very generous, that's probably the best thing. But each time I've come back from maternity leave I've had to switch teams because the new mom bias is terrible. I never talk about my family at work, I find that to be much easier to help avoid mom bias.

The group I'm in has lots of women in technical roles. It has been a leader in women-friendly and family friendly policies. Not all teams are like that, but good ones do exist.

There is lots of support for families at Microsoft. As with many large corporations, the support of women and promotion to leadership varies by group. Some managers and teams really get it and have made changes. Others have not. Yet. I believe Satya Nadella is working hard to make necessary changes.

    We need to promote more women into leadership, but we also need more unconscious bias training for male managers who lead mixed teams to make sure women in engineering and program management roles feel supported.
