Good opportunities for advancement and long hours of work.
SharePoint Consultant (Former Employee), Hyderabad, IndiaJuly 18, 2014
Pros: salary benifits, lot of gifts and new gadgets, lot of opportunities to learn and advancement
Cons: long hours
A typical day at work would begin with stand up calls with the on shore and off shore team discussing status and the developers giving out their plan of the day. Microsoft is about all brilliant minds working together generating great ideas everyday. The beautiful and lavish campus has all the games you can name it. The gifts and gadgets you get every – more... year is remarkable. The hardest part of the job is long hours you spend at work. The co-workers are equally smart and hardworking so to some extent there is this rat race to get better and do more. In nut shell Lots of opportunities and lots of learning and lots of gifts and lot and lots of work. – less

Great material support, poor communicators
Lab Engineer (Current Employee), Seattle, WAMay 16, 2014
Pros: excellent facilities, remote work
Cons: poor communication, lack of human feeling among management and co-workers.
My daily work has been great, as I've been allowed for some time (basically until now) to work mostly remotely from my house, meaning I have a very portable job. I know that this is rare among contractors, so this has been a great thing. Their facilities are second to none. I learned a lot about Windows and the inside culture of such a large company. – more... Management has a lot of improve on, however. They tend to promote people into management who are better served not talking to people, but to computers.

There is a culture of fear and they communicate poorly as a result.

What I liked most was the social aspect of the job when I visited. – less

Microsoft India is a fun place to work.Not only does the campus boast of facilities such as lawn tennis courts, a football field and large cafe, it has some of the brightest minds to work with. It has a work environment conducive to productivity and the management is extremely friendly and approachable.

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
