Relax. Give yourself a year to learn and get your footing. When your manager assigns you an area to cover, reach out to others to learn everything you can about it. Ask everyone you talk with to suggest another person to talk to. If the conversation goes well and you like the person, ask them if you can meet again at some later date to review your work and get advice. Once you feel comfortable, don't limit yourself to what you're assigned to do -- seek out projects, offer to help others, if you are passionate about something, do it. That's the best kept secret around here: if you tell enough people you're working on something, eventually you will be -- just make sure it falls within your org's product/goals/vision. Have fun and connect with others. It'l be great!

Make the most of your experience but don't be afraid to say 'no'... the extra work you take on may not be worth it.

Network! Find projects that interest you outside of your normal responsibilities. Ask for what you want. If you are a working mom, do what you need to do for your family. Microsoft expects that your family will come first. They will support you!

Build strong relationships and network a lot. Don't be afraid to try a new role or job and certainly don't believe every bit of feedback you get.

What a nightmare! Everything was fine until I became pregnant. What was said in my review did not match my review score. It became clear that they were trying to manage me out the minute I returned from maternity leave. I left quickly and had another manager beg me to stay as she knew that my crappy review score was going to her. If you have a bad review score they will deny you disability leave so watch out for this. Absolute pleasure leaving this team!

Be prepared to experience a lot of change, and learn to roll with it. While it remains a male dominated company in the technical roles, you are given every opportunity to either affect change, or influence it positively. Don't worry so much about what you will do in 5 years, just go be excellent at what you are doing now. Don't be afraid to ask for help, and GET A MENTOR!! And finally, be empowered to ask for a promotion and a raise if you think you deserve it! You'll be surprised at how often it will work!

I wish I had been told that you define your own destiny. The company is supportive if you are ready to be ambitious and lean forward. Microsoft does not do very well with employees who are not assertive and don't grab on to opportunities. My advice to young women starting out is to be confident, ask for challenging work and then go and deliver.

Just be yourself and be confident in who that person is... and be in charge of your own career. Don't assume that your manager is there to grow you to the next level or position, etc... it is up to you to determine what learnings you need, what job you think is the best fit next... The manager is just there to help guide you on your quest.
