"Microsoft is a very political place to work, and is not as much about "getting stuff done" as I'd hoped."

"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."

Software Development Engineer
in Hauppauge, NY

"I worked for Microsoft for about eight and a half years at a remote location in Hauppauge, NY on Long Island. Microsoft acquired a small local company named Sybari back in 2005 and that's how this location came to be. Saybari specialized in antivirus protection at the corporate level. Ultimately we wound up under the Exchange division building a management console for O365 and Exchange Online Protection. At one point we were about 100+ people strong, but through layoffs and attrition we were down to about 35 when the final blow was struck in July 2014. They shut us down as a part of the recent head count reduction. Working at Microsoft was a real crazy ride. Because I was working with an extraordinary group of people, I don't think I felt the pain as much as I would have if I was working with people I didn't enjoy being around. The work was tough and demanding. You were expected to drive whatever feature you were working on. Scheduling was terrible. Every time I worked on a new feature the first thing I was told was "you are behind". I would say, "how can I be behind, you just showed me this today." Also, the egos in the company were way too big for my liking. I did learn a lot about process and how software is built on a grand scale. That is something that I am glad I took away from the experience. Of course the benefits and pay were quite good. Also being 13 mins from my home was a huge personal plus. All in all, I am glad I worked for them. It is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. As with any job, there was good and bad. Had they not closed the facility, I would still be there."
