I've been here for almost three years and have built up a lot of communication and management skills. It is a good place to build up skills needed in the industry.

Depends on the team and the manager, but overall it's a very good company, it has good benefits for women/mothers but we can see by ourselves that the leadership is still all men

I have worked here for 3.5 years - its not an easy place to thrive. It takes a while to built credibility and trust. Not to mention, one should build a thick skin and toughen up, in terms of accepting criticism/not being heard, and still voice out to sustain and grow.

Microsoft truly is a company that can change the world. Their reach is incredible. I work on Office, a product used by millions and millions of people every day. That's exciting and motivating! They have lots of perks, but like all large companies, a fair amount of bureaucracy as well. The trick is finding a good team. There are many good teams, but there are a few real lemons that will sour you on Microsoft for good. Once I had kids, I made sure to work only for managers who also had kids -- they just get it. But there are also managers without kids who understand the pressure. While I have been the trailblazer, nowadays I also prefer to work on teams that already have a number of women. You only need about 2 women on a team to make it a safer place, but in the technical roles that is sometimes hard to find. A team with 15-20% women is a sweet spot (harder to find more!).

Every day brings new and wonderful challenges and you get to work with incredibly talented people. The environment is supportive and the company is striving every day to improve the workplace not just for women but for ALL employees.

Teams and organizations vary in terms of the number of total women and their culture. My team has a number of other women, and I've never felt that fact has made my job or my environment less pleasurable. Overall, my coworkers (male or female) have treated me with respect. Leadership (though primarily male) have been forthcoming about wanting and growing a diverse workspace.

Microsoft has made some missteps over time, but in general there is a strong and genuine commitment to diversity. I think after Satya's karma comment our leadership really sought to understand and then harness the value diversity brings to the business. I trust the leadership here, I am able to balance a demanding role with the demands of a growing family at home, and I love my job.
