Microsoft

At #18 on the list, Microsoft received an overall satisfaction score of 4.0 out of 5 for compensations and benefits. Microsoft Corporation is an American multinational corporation headquartered in Redmond, Washington, that develops, manufactures, licenses, supports and sells computer software, consumer electronics and personal computers and services. Its best known software products are the Microsoft Windows line of operating systems, Microsoft Office office suite, and Internet Explorer Web browser. Its flagship hardware products are Xbox game console and the Microsoft Surface series of tablets. Founded in 1975, the company now has annual revenue of well over $10 billion (USD).

Review highlights:

  • "Really good work-life balance compared to other tech companies of the same caliber."
  • "Some smart people in pockets but not many of them great at politics so marginalized."
  • "Great benefits and it is a great place to be early in your career (years 3-5)."
  • "They provide lots of opportunities to network with your higher ups."
  • "Reasonably good benefits (Although these are being eroded now)."

While many factors play into the notion of feeling satisfied with your job and your employer, without a doubt one of the top criteria is adequate compensation and benefits. Let's face it, having adequate financial resources just makes life easier. Feeling that your company appreciates your contribution and supports your well-being, well, that doesn't hurt either.
