I have worked here for 13 years. It's a great place to work depending upon your management. Still very male dominated, but the company is evolving for the better. Great maternity leave options, and flexibility when needed around family.

Its a great company to work for. how women are treated depends on the team you are in , your manager etc. initial pay and level negotiation is key .

Good benefits for both women and men Opportunities to learn and grow Engineering teams are probably lopsided in leadership with more men in those roles, but people related organizations like Services and Human Resources have a good number of female leaders

I've worked at Microsoft for 10 years and overall, for women, I feel it is a good company. My salary is very fair for my role and I feel I am having an impact in what I do everyday. For a company that is very engineering focused, I think there are still a good number of women in those roles. There are several women in leadership positions as well, however not many of the women leaders are in engineering, mostly services and people management. I've never had a problem being judged for being a woman, needing time off or other related experiences.

You need a strong sponsor in your group and a manager who is sensitive to unconscious bias

I've worked here for 6 years and there are a lot of women working here in a range of roles. Generally I believe they are treated fairly, but at times still excluded from "mixing with management". There are can still be people with an us and them mentality.

I've worked here for 4 years. There are great benefits, maternity leave, and work/life balance. The senior leadership is predominately white males. Men are often promoted over women. The current review structure does not account for gender bias so I would assume that men, on average, receive higher bonuses - although HR would not confirm that when I reached out about it. Lots of talk to press about them investing in women, but do not see that happening internally.

    Pros: benefits, paid maternity/paternity leave, work life balance Cons: Leadership is predominately white males, men are often promoted over women, agressive culture that doesn't value assertive women

I've worked here for 7 years. There are a lot of women working within my group - the challenge is that the hours are still very intense. You are on all of the time making it difficult to find time for your family.

Women are still not at equal pay for the same roles / levels as their male counterparts. Leadership roles for women are much harder to attain, particularly if trying to climb from within the organization and in the last couple of years, large percentages of women over the age of 40 were laid-off after years of service.

Depends on which team you go . If there are more men who work 20 hrs a day when u work then you will look like a slacker. Not all teams are like that. But people definitely work more than 8 hrs a day
