"Microsoft is a very hard but fun place to work. It is all about the people you are working with and the things you learn while there. Nothing is more satisfying than those friendships you develop. Compensation is good but the perks are what push them over the edge. If you have the chance to experience it, it is worth it. The review process has changed which was the only down side but outside of that I had no complaints."

"I've worked for Microsoft for 5 years. It was an amazing learning experience. I became pretty independent and self-reliant and learned a lot from many of my coworkers. The company tries to keep its employees as happy as possible and the benefits are awesome. The company also worries a lot regarding work life balance. They won't overwork you."

"I loved working for Microsoft. I left because a long 7 years finally got me itching to move and some career stagnation because I never left my group/project. I encourage you to move around in this company (especially when you get promoted), best way to get ahead and get vast experience. All the tools you could ever need to do your job but almost no control or ownership over what you are doing (at least in the well established products)."

"I've worked for Microsoft since the early 90s. It's been a great place to learn engineering. The profitability allows Microsoft to sustain engineering projects that have only long term payoff. However the profitability also leads to negative behaviors in middle and upper management in their quest to create the next billion dollar business.Satya's new leadership is refreshing, if you want to fit in."
