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.

I have worked at the company for almost 25 years and have enjoyed a variety of roles and different orgs - every role and group has so many different opportunities. As a female employee and manager I have never felt limited, judged or held back. Competition is challenging, the modified review system is much better but as a manager I don't feel like I have complete control of rewards for me team.

It is not my gender that makes me feel different - it is being single, childless, and American. I assume any single, childless, American male would feel the same. This is a very good place to work. Keep in mind, though, that experience can vary wildly between teams. That being said, my experience has been great.

Speak up else you will be stepped over/talked over and overlooked. You have to adopt Men-like behaviors to be successful here.

The flex time opportunities are great. As a single mother of a small child, it was hard for me to work regular hours. All managers I've had of me working when it makes sense for me.

I've worked at MSFT for 12+ years and through two kids. They are not very supportive of part-time work, but typically supportive of other flex options. the environment in each division/group can be really different. I highly recommend DevDiv, the developer division whose focus is on developer tools. I would stay away from Xbox unless you are a work-aholic gamer. I don't think that group is very family friendly.

I've worked here for several years and have seen a good balance of both male and female managers with both being very supportive and treating everyone equally. Being in the engineering side of things I've always been used to being the only, or one of the very few females in the room/team and that's true as well but definitely improves when you happen to be with a female manager.

Good benefits and culture for families in general, even though the particular experience depends on the particular team/department
