"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."

"In projects at Microsoft since 2008 of varying size and scope. Despite these projects, it's been difficult to enter the company as a full time employee. As a contractor, I would not recommend this company. Microsoft is behind the proverbial 8-ball, and no longer an innovator."
"Microsoft as a whole is well known for being a great place to work. However, Bing is highly aggressive and management encourages adversarial behavior in employees to create a "competitive" work environment. The rest of Microsoft seems to be well received."

In this position I utilized my extensive knowledge of IT both systems and network infrastructure and what lies beneath the application layer as well as managing numerous technical teams within IT.
