From Redmond, WA — 08/31/2009

I was a blue badge that left due to a lack of work/life balance. The company is extremely competitive internally, and evaluations are loosely based on a bell curve which does not leave any room for mistakes, and there are very few dummies who work there. 60 hour work weeks are typical, more closer to deadlines. Corporate culture is disturbingly full of introverted megalomaniacs, and is also top heavy. Compensation and perks are excellent, and facilities and resources are world class. It all depends on who you get to work with...and you have to watch your back. If you're an engineer and money is all that you care about, then Microsoft is for you.
