In the 7 years that I’ve been with this company, I’ve received several promotions and felt that I was treated equally to my male and female peers with regards to base pay and bonus. At times it is difficult to find work life balance with many exciting and big projects, but the culture is typically flexible so it’s all about the quality and impact of your work and not about the amount of time you are in the office. The environment is collaborative and my ideas are heard. Affinity groups have been a great way to connect with others, providing safe forums for discussion, and for networking. I would recommend this company to other woman as a great place to work- and one that is continually looking for ways to do even better.

I've found this role to be very supportive of women's equal pay and maternity leave benefits!

Opinions are heard and feedback taken - no matter who offers it up. Work/life balance is what you make of it here and choices are supported as long as work gets completed.

I've worked here for roughly 2 years and have quickly moved up in roles and level. I work with a majority of female managers and associates (I'm in HR) and feel my thoughts are heard and my value to the team is known. I look forward to continuing to grow in this company and plan to stay as far as my career path will take me.

I have worked there for 17 years. I had major illness and later twins and I have always had support from my managers and co-workers. It's a good role with interesting work and there's nothing to complain about except the terrible traffic to and from work.

I have worked for this company a long time and stayed through having 2 kids. I was with the team for a while and built up my credibility before having kids, so that helped. With my second kid I was managing a team and had more responsibilities, so it was more challenging. I moved to a individual contributor role to help with better work life balance but the career trajectory definitely slows down.

Overall I've enjoyed my time at Microsoft. I've had 2 kids and was even promoted while on Mat leave. There are times where work-life balance can be a bit difficult but it is achievable.

There are a lot of old-school men around, but it has changed a lot over the years. I doubt that it is worse than any other major company with regard to how it treats women. I don't notice a difference between the treatment of women who have taken maternity leave. If anything, it's overcompensated for to make sure no one takes issue. That said, I am treated differently because I am a woman, often. However, I am happy with my work/life balance and the creativity of the job, so I don't plan to leave.
