"Bar none, Microsoft is the best company that I have worked for. Why? Solid management, employees are well taken care of and well compensated. Well defined career path and every one is given the opportunity to succeed, excel and contribute to the financial goal of the company. For me it was 16+ years of excitement, commitment and rewarding fun work."

"For a vendor, this team is a good team to work with."

What do you like about working at Microsoft?

"I am assigned to the team by Chinasoft. All the people that I worked with are nice."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"It's pretty much the same as Microsoft would interview their own employees. Microsoft has high expectations."

What don't you like about working at Microsoft?

"As a vendor, we are second class citizens compared to FTEs. For the most part I am fine with that, except when it comes to office space. Vendors sometimes don't have any place to sit."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"As vendors, we are getting less pay, and work harder than FTEs. The China vendor team is not as capable as Microsoft FTEs, so please lower expectations to the offshore team. As a team leader, sometimes I found its difficult to manage expectations."
