"I've worked at Microsoft for about 20 years. It's a great place to work. Sometimes the employees are too smart - they forget that most customers could care less how smart you are or how hard something was to implement; they just want something that works. Interview process can be frustrating (personally, as well as trying to recruit others). Solving theoretical problems quickly has way too much leverage over hard-won practical experience. But many tech companies have that problem right now."

"Been at Microsoft for four years. It's so big that judging it a monolith would be unfair. There is a culture to it, but I haven't had any other job. It seems healthy, and promotes a good work/life balance. You grow as much as you can push."

"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."
