"I've worked at Microsoft since November 2013 as a product advisor. I enjoyed helping the clients with trouble shooting, setting up phone service and finding the right product for them. The work environment was great, fast paced and friendly. In a work place where people are continuously coming in and out, there is rarely a dull moment."
"Microsoft is a good company regarding pay and benefits. They say they value diversity in opinions, but if you express differing opinions you are labeled not a team player. It is hard to get a promotion these days, and higher level people are being pushed out to make room for more junior people with fresher ideas."
"Microsoft is a good global company, but there is a lot of room to improve."
"Microsoft is a great company to work for. In fact, it does not need my or anyone's recommendation. It's kind of small Silicon Valley - you have all possible choices within the company. The company culture is great, people are very talented. As a downside I'd mention too many re-orgs happened recently, but this is probably the nature of today's dynamic world and market. I enjoyed working in Microsoft, think the experience gained there will help me a lot in other projects in my career."
"I had worked with Microsoft for over 2.5 years. During this time frame, my work environment changed drastically. Upon 1st on-boarding, work expectations were clear. However, by the time that I left, my own management had a very difficult time giving any form of solid examples of what was required to be successful within our division.You could meet & exceed your goals, and you could still be reprimanded by upper management for not doing better, or even in some cases, for doing too good."
"Once we shipped our product... all us contractors were let go, in my opinion that was kind of messed up. Another thing was that to get the product out on time we worked overtime... A LOT of overtime, and was asked not to report all our hours. And to just take some comp-time, but that prooved hard to do because we got let go after ship."
"Great place to work but the growth velocity is not good. The requirements to get to the senior level is not really something I want to do."
"Amazing company, great environment, a lot of lessons to be learned."
"Working here provides significant challenges and opportunities for technical growth. Typically you are working with some of the smartest people around. One of the best place to work in the D.C. area by far."
"I worked for Microsoft for 2 years and their management style is a popularity contest. Microsoft requires 1 person to be let go every year in each division, it is a company requirement. The individual that gets let go might have a stellar record but for any reason can end up being the person let go for that fiscal year. They do not explain their management style when hired. Microsoft's HR department even after filing complaints did not reach out to me or try to help me in anyway."
"If ever given the chance to work with Xbox again, I would take it in a heart beat! Microsoft fosters innovation and creativity."

"Good company to work for."
"I've worked at Microsoft since early 2013, the company is innovative and has very well established processes. I personally, enjoy more environments where employees are empowered to make decisions rather than follow processes, this was I believe innovation is maximized and employees deliver at their best. I rather provide good context to my teams that enforce control to what they do."
