Good place

Indeed featured review

Good place to work. Was okay, to many distributors but not many employees. Good wfh if you like test but managers can be tough if they don't like you.

It's an okay place

It's good and easy to connect with the people here. It's fun at times but it doesnt have flexible times. I would rate it a 3/10. Not much schooling is required too.

Good place to work

No complaints really, a bit if nepotism but to be expected in those large environments. Pay was good, colleagues were mostly friendly and the tech stack was top of the line as expected.

Great place to work

The compensation package offered here is truly competitive and reflective of the value each employee brings to the table. The benefits provided are comprehensive and really show that the company cares about its employees' well-being.One of the most remarkable aspects of this organization is the team of intelligent and talented individuals I have the privilege to work with. Collaborating with such brilliant minds on challenging projects has not only enhanced my professional growth but also fostered an environment of continuous learning.There is a clear path for career advancement. The company provides ample opportunities for professional development, and the guidance and mentorship available have been instrumental in shaping my career trajectory. I'm excited about the possibilities ahead and the potential for personal and professional growth within the company.Microsoft is a remarkable place to work, offering great pay, exceptional benefits, and the chance to collaborate with brilliant colleagues. The promising career trajectory and potential for growth make it an excellent choice for anyone looking to thrive in their professional journey.

Great workplace

Microsoft's mission is to empower every org to achieve more and that's really what the culture is all about. Great company, culture, coworkers, perks, and everything in between.

Great company. Learned a lot. Recommend working there but don't stay to long. Training great. Difficult to move up in company. Make sure you move around every 2 years max. I would work there again.

Learn something new everyday

Great place to keep up on your skills always new things to learn daily. Co-workers are great, most are willing to help each other for all to succeed. Every day is something new. Management changes are frequent. A few managers are exceptional, others not so much.


Benefits are comparable, team work is encouraged


work/life balance can be difficult to manage

Awesome place to work

Culture was amazing, people were kind! Pay was decent but other benefits made up for it. 100% match rrsp after 3 months free drinks, snacks and even bought a cake for everyone during their birthday.

Great work culture

Almost everyone in my department wanted to see me progress and win. They were very welcoming. Great work-life balance. Encouraging work environment for learning.

Great Company

Great Culture and socially conscious company. Great benefits and work conditions whether it be hybrid, WFH, or on-site. Pay can be better and job stability during low markets is a constant risk.

Great Place to Work!

Love working for this company. The culture is inclusive, folks work hard, and more importantly, they team together. It’s a great place to work and would highly recommend to anyone.

Culture was toxic, Management cared only for the scorecard

I worked at Microsoft for several years. From the day I started to the day I left, the decline in culture was very evident. People stopped talking to each other, everyone became very siloed in their own accounts, and Management only cared if their scorecard was "green".

A great brand on Resume

Before COVID, I often worked from home as I wasn't asked to go into the office much. I've had a lot of exposure to the company culture and noticed how "getting-by" is the name of the game... marketing yourself internally is key to advancing in this culture, and what matters is how people "look" and "sound" not what they really are.... my own experience there was not positive at all, a lot to be fixed in how MS looks for talent and keeps the people who are willing to work hard, as opposed to showing off their work and pushing hard their's a huge company, so I can only talk about my impression that's surely influenced by many disappointments and an HR (Talent) system that is too big to be fair to everyone.


Brand on resume


too huge to make a tangible impact, unless you're okay with self-marketing and showing off

Not a place I would recommend to anyone

The job itself was great working with clients of microsoft was amazing. Really where this review come into place is management. I have never professionally worked at a career with a level of such bad middle management as this. People with 10 years experience who had little to no knowledge of selling nor doing proper coaching with there teams. Microsoft was my dream company before I started but within a year of working there I could no longer stand working for these managers. Really would recommend talking a deep look at the digital online sales team managers.


great colleagues

Chill job with a lot of development opportunities

Hours are flexible as long as you get your tasks/projects finished. The culture was great, and everyone is very approachable and happy to be working here.

Great job if you have the right politics.

Its Microsoft. They operate as you would expect a giant tech company too in 2022. They hire and promote based on your identity versus your capabilities, so keep that in mind.


Good pay
