Fun place to work
Corporate Call Center Operator (Former Employee), Redmond, WAOctober 31, 2014
Pros: healthcare and lunches
Work days are very stressful if you work in the call center. Managers are good at stepping in if they need to. Co-worker are very close with each other. Hardest part of the job is the callers. If you do not have tough skin, this will not be the place for you to work. Everyone on the MS campus appreciates all the hard work the call center operator do. – more... Overall it is a nice place to work at. – less

Microsoft does follow through on it's commitment
Corporate Marketing Group - Microsoft Studios (Former Employee), Redmond, WAOctober 25, 2014
Pros: will provide access to all the information available on any given technical subject.
Cons: review process is a subjective farce
I liked working at Microsoft because it was impressed on all the new hires in 1995 that it's employees were it's most valuable asset. The quality and depth of information provided to every employee was unmatched to any other employer I had ever worked for. Microsoft was sincerely committed to developing its employees to their highest potential. All – more... that was required was a fundamental curiosity and desire to figure out how to turn a mountain of data into useful information for the problem at hand.
Sadly a lot more intelligence went into figuring out how to game the compensation/review process. The results being a management style that rewarded never taking a risk and in those cases where risk was inherent to the project, make sure there were 'mitigating circumstances' or someone else to blame in the event of failure.
The biggest inflection points for Microsoft were when stock options were removed from the rank and file employees compensation. Then the DOJ and EU trials. Bill leaving the management to Steve was another change that reinforced a risk adverse corporate culture. Steve was great at exploiting markets and increasing market share but was not respected for his technical acumen or vision. Bill might have been repairing his personal brand by becoming a great philanthropist with Melinda, but Microsoft as a company suffered mightily as a result. – less
