Group Program Manager

I've worked here 15 years and have had years where I would say this was a dream job and years where I'm wondering how to get out and its closely tied to the organization. As I've gotten more senior I see more of the double standards and how org specific it is. In terms of broad benefits the company is amazing, can't complain. In terms of interpersonal support we need to get rid of the "old microsofties" who are focused on survival and move to a thrive model.

    Maybe. Depends on the team. In a good team hell yeah! In some teams I've worked in, definitely not.

Work life integration is a challenge wherever you go, whatever your choice. I think it's important to work to solve this within the context of your own situation, knowing what's most important to you, always pursuing your goals, and learn from/lean on others, develop your village. It is possible to have everything you want .... perhaps not all at the same time (though I haven't given up on this yet either! :)), but it's important to maintain perspective.

Account Executive

Federal Sales

You'll have a hard time finding a place where you can grow your career faster and with the work-life balance I find here. However, with no female leadership from the account teams through to the CEO, I've faced countless aggressive comments internally (and externally) with no support or understanding. While Microsoft says that it values collaboration, mentorship and openness, you are often looked at critically by your peers for displaying too much of those attributes (and won't find your peers displaying them either). All in all though, I am very happy here and plan on staying for a while.

    Maybe. I'm very happy here, and building my career at a rapid pace, but there isn't a single female in leadership from our entire management team through the CEO and it shows.

There's sub-cultures. Some divisions are great for women, some not so much.

There is general fairness, but the management and workforce is heavily male dominated. Networking with men is difficult, especially if it happens post work over drinks. I also have worked with a few senior people ,manager (1 out of 6) and ICs where I have been judged on likability instead of assertiveness and performance. I have not seen this criteria extend to men. The other area which needs work is when people are given more focus if they share their criticism and opinions, rather than collaboratively proposing solutions.

I worked at Microsoft for 8.5 years and loved my career there. You have to be protective of your own balance and set expectations with your manager, etc... I think Microsoft does a great job around professional development and ultimately is invested in helping employees get to where they want to go.

I'm relatively new but so far it's a very good place to work. The legal department has LOTS of women -- possibly to make up for not having very many on the engineering side.
