The competition is hot on our heels!
Account Executive (Former Employee), Mississauga, ONMarch 28, 2014
They days of Microsoft being the del facto standard are behind them. The company is a little too large and arrogant to compete with Google and Apple but upper management is starting to change. Mid managers are still interested in one thing your funnel and license sales.

There is no training for Account Managers, so you are on your own to figure out – more... everything – less

GROUP MANAGER (Former Employee), Redmond, WANovember 12, 2013
Pros: treat you fairly and pay you well
Cons: constant change can be discombobulating
I loved working at Microsoft. They really did have a culture of trying to make work fun, interesting and compelling. The work was hard, and hours were long, but one got a real sense of having done something worthwhile, not because the products were that fabulous but because management tried to show that they valued everyone's contributions.

Game rooms, pool tables, and a fridge full of beers! (after 5 pm only)
IT Support Specialist (Former Employee), Mississauga, ONOctober 29, 2013
atypical day at work would include, receiving calls from home users to rectify their computer or PC issues. I learned how to probe and be patient in learning and understanding the customer needs. How to communicate resolutions to the presented problems in a simple vocab. co-workers were fun to work with. The hardest part of the job was the commute, – more... as I was living a city away, none the less I was always there and on time. – less

Exciting Work, Always Leading the Pack
Senior Analyst/Excel/ SQL Reporting (Former Employee), Redmond, WAJune 19, 2013
Pros: flexible work hours
Cons: demanding, results oriented environment, highly competitive.
I enjoyed working with Microsoft. Everyone is dedicated and fully vested in the projects I worked on. I always had a sense that I was part of the pack, leading the way.

As a consultant with them I enjoyed the flexible work schedule, working from home or on the road if needed. Offices are not terribly elaborate but everyone has a door they can close. – more... Getting the right equipment to use while developing was never difficult, as a company they upgrade to new technology every two years or so. – less

Overall I have practically all positive things to say about working Microsoft. Like any company, your happiness is greatly affected by your specific team's policies and people. I'd say the majority of people I worked with were happy and were great people.
