Most Helpful Critical Review

Former employee - Manager / Senior Manager

It greatly depends on your management team and the VP at the top of the chain. There are several places in the company that are vastly different in terms of culture and team fit. A good manager will maximize your experience, but the executives will put the ceiling on how good that can be. Microsoft Research was a good place, Office (feels like a preppy university), games organizations (juvenile gamer-bro culture), and Windows and the server groups (blue collar type ethic) have their own cultures, and likely if you fit one of them you'll be a bad fit for the other. They are almost different companies in terms of how they operate, how you are rewarded, and who is successful (at the peon level). At the partner level you see a more homogeneous breakdown (people with very high social skills who genuinely care about the business and their people, and those with BillG's social skills who care about being right), however most will never need to know.
