"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 places to work in the D.C. area by far."

"MSN (part of Microsoft) was a good company to work for at the time. The pay and benefits were great - free soda for everyone! But, MSN really lagged behind other portals at the time in terms of innovation. Great place to get some experience, but it's dangerous to get too comfortable and stay there for long. Long-term Microsoft employees are seen in the same light as college students who take 10 years to get a degree."

"I worked at Microsoft for 3 years as a [Technical] Program Manager. In short, this is how I felt: PROS: Good benefits, good work-life balance, strong employees, and some good products to work on. CONS: Politics, high attrition in my team, lots of reorgs, very subjective review process."

"If you are looking for a contract position with Microsoft. I would suggest any other placement agency other then Volt/VMC. They tend to offer lower pay rates, and less benefits then the other agencies."
