Microsoft offers a ton of flexibility and opportunity - I have been here almost 13 years and I am very proud to work for Microsoft.

Experience for women will vary greatly depending on the group they are in. I have had a great experience, did interesting work and am fairly compensated. I do not have executive aspirations, which helped me choose balance. It is a fairly flexible work place in most groups which many take for granted. And 20 weeks mat leave (8 unpaid) with 4 / 8 for men is pretty darn good.

If you want to be taken seriously, do not start in a support role. There is a massive glass ceiling above all support roles and near impossible to break out of them, regardless of skills or experience. Ability "choose" work hours or flexibility is completely dependent on your current manager. Good manager = good work/mom balance. Not awesome manager = crappy work/mom balance.

I have worked here for 5 years and there are quite a few women here but mainly in lower level roles. Generally I believe they are treated fairly but management is male dominated an not diverse. Some managers treat women differently than there mail counterpartes

Microsoft is a good employer... but with a lot of legacy in place. While Satya tries to refresh the company and improve it's policies, most of it still operates with a lot of politics and slowness.

I worked at Microsoft for 10 years, 6 as a contingent staff and 4 as an FTE. I had so many positive experiences working at Microsoft, but did not leave on a very positive note. I felt like there was so good equality among males and females, but there were often "good ole boys clubs" that made it difficult to network well. I think maternity leave is generous, but being a working mom was criticized by many and not overly supported from my leadership.

My experience has been that there is a lot of flexibility and trust. Microsoft hires smart people that are good workers, so the philosophy in my group was: here's your job, here's the deadline, I don't care where you do it or when you do it, just get it done. I appreciate that flexibility and trust as a parent. There isn't any feeling of having to "clock in and out" With that said, the majority of senior leadership is male. There is a level that I believe is difficult to surpass while still spending a reasonable amount of time with your family.
