"This was a great team to work with - they respected my input, gave me useful feedback, and gave me autonomy without isolation. Also, it was an environment where you could relax and be yourself; people were comfortable with each other's quirks and habits, and I really liked my coworkers, not just liked working with them. The best thing, though, was my boss, who was great to have in your corner; she was very good at getting people to work together and getting them what they needed when they needed it."

"Worked on several projects in 2 years, including Windows Phone, Xbox and Surface. Organization-wise, is good, though sometimes not a clear goal."

"With the recent changes in CEO and constant re-organizations of teams I would not recommend Microsoft as a place to work unless you are passionate about cloud development such as Office 365 or Microsoft Azure, as the rest of the company is not as important to Satya."

"I worked with Microsoft for 6 years. While the company was a dream job to start with, the internal political climate has changed dramatically over the years into more of a company that will work its employees into the ground and spit them out when they are done with them."

"Microsoft can be a great place to work for full time employees, but they tend to treat their contract work force with very little respect. Not a work environment conducive to "team building"."

"Microsoft is an amazing company to work for. There is however a tremendous amount of pressure in the organization, but with that comes a higher salary. There is also a great deal of extra work to do out side of your day to day job. This adds on a great deal work to your work week. You need to do this additional work in order to promote yourself in the organization as it is large and the only way to move up is to get recognized. it's exciting, but very challenging and in my role travel is 100%."
