"Had a great experience working with Microsoft."
"When moving jobs within the company make sure you have a good report with your manager and your manager's manager."
"I've worked for Microsoft since 2008. The pay is not the best but they do really have good benefits. This is a big company, so you will be able to experience how big companies make decisions and turn around for things. You also be able to learn all the steps and processes to make project or development professional."
"I worked at Microsoft since 1997. Absolutely wonderful salary and benefits. The quality of the experience in teams that I worked in varied, some wonderful, some poor. To get a job here, do some research regarding the technology of the position, and practice whiteboard coding of classic simple coding algorithms. A general trend I observed is that those at higher management levels seem to not be sincerely focused on serving the needs of the customer, fully understanding the customer, and failing to drive technical innovation. The usual large company political/social agendas seem to take priority, despite constant discussion about serving the customer and driving innovation. Upper management is not finely honed technically. Efforts to make change at the Individual Contributor (non-management) level tend to fail. This lack of innovation is ultimately reflected by the current revenue status of Microsoft in relation to Google, Apple and others. How to improve the situation? The problem is endemic to management itself, so corrective action needs to occur starting at the very top of the chain. Perhaps in part by injecting highly technically competent leaders into the management chain, found externally, and then empowering them with the authority to implement corrections."

"I worked for Microsoft for last 5 months. Company is really good. People are good to work with. Good pay."
"Great company to work for. You learn a lot at your job."
"Great atmosphere and supporting colleagues. Lots of enthusiasm and work flexibility."
"It's a good company and I have enjoyed working with it."
"With the recent changes in CEO and constant re-organizations of teams I would not recommend Microsoft as a place to work unless you are passionate about cloud development such as Office 365 or Microsoft Azure, as the rest of the company is not as important to Satya."
"I worked with Microsoft for 6 years. While the company was a dream job to start with, the internal political climate has changed dramatically over the years into more of a company that will work its employees into the ground and spit them out when they are done with them."
"Good thing to start with the check for."
"Great people to work with, but innovating rapidly due to the current engineering system was and is severely lacking."
"Microsoft can be a great place to work for full time employees, but they tend to treat their contract work force with very little respect. Not a work environment conducive to "team building"."
