4. Microsoft

4.1. Carrer Path

4.1.1. Engineering

4.1.1.1. Software Development Engineer (SDE)

4.1.1.1.1. you’re straight out of college. Your education hasn’t prepared you to work in a professional team environment with money on the line and customers that aren’t figments of your professor’s imagination. You’re clueless.

4.1.1.1.2. You will be assigned simple features to work on. Typically, these features are well understood and have been implemented similarly before. Most of the work is a matter of modifying code or filling in detailed code. Your mandate is “Don’t burn down the house” and to learn the ropes (i.e. how things are done in the group).

4.1.1.1.3. Salariu

4.1.1.2. Software Development Engineer 2 (SDE 2)

4.1.1.2.1. you can code up anything your lead asks of you. Period. If you don’t know how, you know who to ask, or who to ask who to ask. This is the last time you’ll be differentiated by your coding skills.

4.1.1.2.2. You will be responsible for a set of related features, or parts of a project that are well-known and well-defined. You’re expected to own and execute this set of features end-to-end, with some guidance. The work is mostly about executing, not creating new solutions.

4.1.1.2.3. Salariu

4.1.1.3. Senior Software Development Engineer (Sr. SDE)

4.1.1.3.1. you influence the rest of your team of roughly 3 – 12 engineers. You influence them as their managing lead or as their technical lead. Either way, your impact extends beyond what you can do alone.

4.1.1.3.2. The jump from SDE II to Senior SDE is non-trivial, or even difficult sometimes. You’re expected to independently own an entire project that could be fairly complex. The projects are often vaguely defined, with plenty of ambiguities. You, as a senior level engineer, should be able to “figure things out” to come to a good end-to-end solution. Issues they need to think about include “What kind of architecture would work the best?”, “What’s the efficiency or complexity of our solution?”, or “Can we delivery on time?” Good examples of the scope of work for Senior SDEs include: chart integration for Word SmartArt plugin for PowerPoint compatibility mode for IE

4.1.1.3.3. Salariu

4.1.1.4. Principal Software Development Engineer

4.1.1.4.1. you influence the entire group of roughly 12 – 80 engineers. You influence them as their discipline manager, group manager, architect, or core technology guru. Regardless, you have become a key person in your organization

4.1.1.4.2. Jumping from Senior SDE to Principal level is one of the most difficult things to do at Microsoft. You’re expected to be a true technical leader and provide your group/division with technical directions at a strategic level and improve the team’s productivity or work quality by at least 10x. Your manager won’t be telling you what to do because your job is to decide what the group should focus on. Here are some possible projects for Principal SDEs: Extensibility feature of Word presentation and formatting for PowerPoint Javascript engine for IE

4.1.1.4.3. Salariu

4.1.1.5. Partner Software Development Engineer

4.1.1.5.1. you influence the entire organization of 80 – 500 engineers. You are the discipline director, general manager, partner architect, or core technology worldwide expert. You have become a partner at the company.

4.1.1.5.2. The impact level of your work is not only product-wide, but it also spans across multiple products. Your work has direct and visible impact to Microsoft’s business and technology. As a partner-level individual contributor, you are likely to be one of a handful of architects for a major Microsoft product, such as Bing, Xbox, SQL Server, etc. You make strategic contributions by providing technical leadership. You get to think about future architecture, cross product alignment, and technology innovation for key Microsoft products.

4.1.1.5.3. Salariu

4.1.1.6. Distinguished Engineer

4.1.1.7. Technical Fellow

4.1.1.7.1. you influence the entire division and with it the entire industry (from 500 to millions of engineers). You are the distinguished engineer, technical fellow, or vice president. Money is probably not a concern of yours anymore unless you have a serious gambling problem.

4.1.2. Leaders

4.1.2.1. Software Development Engineer 2 Lead (SDE)

4.1.2.2. Senior Software Development Engineer Lead

4.1.2.3. Principal Software Development Engineer Lead

4.1.2.4. Partner Software Development Engineer Lead

4.1.3. Managers

4.1.3.1. Senior Software Development Engineer Manager

4.1.3.2. Principal Software Development Engineer Manager

4.1.3.3. Partner Software Development Engineer Manager

4.1.3.4. Corporate Vice President - SDE

4.2. Promovari

4.2.1. Distributie fortata

4.2.1.1. 1 - top 20%

4.2.1.2. 2 - next 20%

4.2.1.3. 3 - next 40%

4.2.1.4. 4 - next 13%

4.2.1.5. 5 - next 7%

4.2.2. Promotions are based on your ranking, your time in level, if there is an opportunity for work at the next level available, and promotional budget.

4.2.3. It is expected that about 30% of employees will get promoted a level (like from 59 to 60) each year. This means it is typical to take about 3 years per level (but obviously some employees are faster than this, some slower).

4.2.4. Fiecare nivel e de fapt o banda

4.2.4.1. Band 1: 58, 59, 60 (SDE/PM)

4.2.4.1.1. Level 59 – Straight out of school with an undergraduate degree.

4.2.4.1.2. Level 60 – Straight out of school with a master’s degree or college grads with some experience

4.2.4.2. Band 2: 61, 62 (SDE 2/PM 2)

4.2.4.2.1. Level 61 & 62 – Straight out of school with a PhD or others with at least 5-7 years of industry experience.

4.2.4.3. Band 3: 63, 64 (Senior Dev/Senior PM)

4.2.4.3.1. Level 63 & 64 – People with at least 7-10 years of experience. Their work is expected to set direction for the team.

4.2.4.4. Band 4: 65, 66, 67 (Principal Dev/Principal PM)

4.2.4.4.1. Level 65, 66, 67 – People not only with significant professional experience, but also with proven track record of shipping large, complex software and leading development teams. Their work impacts their division.

4.2.4.5. Band 5: 68, 69, 70 (Partner)

4.2.4.5.1. Level 68, 69, 70 – A tiny group of people. Their work has business impact at the company level for Microsoft. Each year, there are very limited number of spots at this level open up within each division.

4.2.5. It is a lot harder to get promotions that cross bands (60 to 61, 62 to 63, 64 to 65) than it is to get promotions with in the bands.
