Microsoft is a bit of an odd duck. It's very difficult to move around in this company because they have taken the good old boy network and institutionalized it. They actually tell you, you have to hobnob and glad-hand the hiring manager for six months to a year before a job opens and then once one opens, you will be at the top of the list. if you don't do this, you will not ever get interviewed for any job. So, forget having the right experience and credentials; those do not matter at all. What matters is hanging out at the bar and having a drink. and yes, that is MUCH more awkward as a woman.

I left Microsoft for another local tech company, and only stayed away for about 2 years. I love it here! I've been back for about 3 with no plans to leave. I have excellent flexibility, can work from home, and have very reasonable expectations for my work.
