I have worked for Microsoft for over 10 years. I enjoy my work, but what you read about Microsoft and their stack ranking system and how the company is run by HR is true. They mandate women have to be in interview loops above a certain level and this does not help the image of women or working towards diversity. Our CEO has had a few blunders in the press, and my personal sentiment is he is not people focused and the culture is still very cut throat at the expense of the business.

Having a good manager is key to being successful here, as is being very driven and motivated to sell yourself.

Microsoft is transitioning from an "old school" company of many male engineers to a "current" company with a healthy mix & attitude towards women and men, as well as affordances for more flexible works schedules. Most of the women I work with have children or are planning to have children & they feel that Microsoft allows them to be a mom and work. I personally like to work out in the morning so I can cook dinner with my husband in the evening. Microsoft lets me get in later / leave later so that I can do that.

I've worked here for almost my entire career - mostly as full time, but with a part-time stint as well. I've had maternity leaves and was very supported through them. I feel like there are great places for women in this company but that there does exist an "boys" network that tends to undervalue some of the strengths that women bring to the table and that results in few women being promoted to leadership positions.

Like any other organization - Finding a sponsor (male or female) will do wonders for one's career.

Just like any other corporation. Pick your manager not the job.

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.

Ive worked for Microsoft for 4 years through 1 pregnancy. I was 9 months pregnant and still working when a position that I was qualified appeared within my current team. A position that had I not been pregnant I am sure I would have gotten. Other than that I returned to work disappointed but my work life balance since the pregnancy has been great. I feel like overall the company is supportive.
