"It was an ok place to work. There are a lot of office politics that make getting things done difficult and unenjoyable in many respects. Managers attempt to land grab for resources and it eventually hurts the brand and getting things done."
"The company benefits are amazing, the work life balance is good. The day in the life of a Desktop Support Advisor is a crazy one. Imagine having to solve 15-25 technical appointments in 15 minutes or less. Then imagine your supervisor asking you to maintain top sales with the floor salesmen. Yeah, really. It is a chaotic work environment, plenty to do, plenty to see, plenty of problems that need to be solved. If you like doing just one or two tasks a day, THIS IS NOT THE JOB FOR YOU."
"Wouldn't recommend working at Microsoft."
"I've worked for Microsoft close to 1 year and it is a wonderful place to work."

"Not much to say about working life in Microsoft. I got laid off shortly after being transferred to Microsoft as the result of its Nokia acquisition."
"Microsoft is a world class company with great and diverse of opportunities. Being in the good environment in Microsoft there are opportunities for professional developments."
"Strong company with great values and gained excellent working experience. Couldn't ask for a better environment."
"Bar none, Microsoft is the best company that I have worked for. Why? Solid management, employees are well taken care of and well compensated. Well defined career path and every one is given the opportunity to succeed, excel and contribute to the financial goal of the company. For me it was 16+ years of excitement, commitment and rewarding fun work."
"Microsoft is a fantastic company - great vision, great benefits, smart people. But there is a corporate hierarchy that gets in the way of truly making a difference until you reach higher levels - this is a very top down driven organization."
"Very good company to work with overall but be aware of some unusual labor practices not expected from a company like Microsoft."
"Great company to work. Lots of technology and you will never get bored of working here."
"Great company to work for."
"I worked for Microsoft Corporation for seven years. I was with the PlayReady team for the entire time. I most valued the diversity of the team, the strong teamwork, and commitment to customer satisfaction. Microsoft provided many opportunities and resources to improve and grow professionally. Microsoft is a global company with over 100,000 employees."
"Great company, but very competitive on the inside. Difficult to develop a long term career. Microsoft is interested on moving people and hiring younger talent each year. A lot of time focused on internal stuff. The company moves fast but still slower than what is really needed. Joined 1993 - recently left."
