"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."

Did you take Maternity leave?
"No"
"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)."
