After working there for many years, I watched more male colleagues get promoted than females. Many of the women were relegated to being worker-bees. Yes, there are some instances of deviation but not many.
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.
It depends ont he group you are in and who is the manager. Sometimes the hours are flexible and sometimes not really.
The company has option of working from home which comes handy with kids and running errands. You can also take calls remotely. It differs from team to team and depends on manager's attitude as well. Some managers themselves work from 7am to 7pm straight and expect you to do the same. If you land up in a good team, you'll be lucky.
Seek our mentors who you connect with and have attributes/experience/professional presence that interest you (or that you'd like to learn more about): meet with your mentors and don't be afraid to ask questions. If you find yourself under a less-than-supportive manager, seek out others, or sit tight because managers tend to shift around rather frequently here...
