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.

Madam of Mystery

Senior Program Manager

January 1970

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.

Madam Mexican

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.

Garbonz Girl

Business Program Manager Group Manager

IT

January 1970

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.

Madam Coder

Software Engineer

January 1970

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.

DevDiv

January 1970

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.
