Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Dublin13 May 2019
Microsoft is a great employer in Ireland. Over the years the company has evolved and has put a lot of effort into employee wellness. There are good benefits and a lot of opportunities to learn and expand your skillset. Unfortunately, the group I was in had redundancies or I would still be there.
Pros
Great benefits, flexitime, further education, internal opportunities

Growth Mindset culture is real
Solution Sales Lead, Data Platform & Analytics (Former Employee) –  IE25 April 2019
The cultural transformation after Satya Nadella took over as CEO was a very real and positive development. The team culture is excellent but expect to work hard and you need to gain necessary experience and deliver performance before you progress in further roles.

Senior UX Production Designer, EMEA (Former Employee) –  Dublin29 August 2018
Great place to work. International team of knowledgable members. Benefits including subsidised canteen and very flexible working hours. Management was good for me but not always for other teams. Little autonomy: heavily centralised to US HQ.

Great benefits and salary but poor management in Dublin
Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Dublin1 June 2018
Not a positive culture for introverts, a one size fits all attitude towards personality types.The low partitions made it very noisy and hard to concentrate, especially for introverts, but management didn't care.

Management in Ireland is ineffective, too focused on keeping their own jobs rater than moving the business forward.
Pros
Salary and benefits
Cons
Dislike of introverts
