"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."

"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."

Embedded Systems Engineer

"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."

"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."
