Good Company to work!

Great benefits, understanding teammates, sense of belonging and purpose of doing a job. Although, you need to switch after some years to get the industry standards.

Best place to work

I enjoyed my 5 years tenure in Microsoft Global Delivery. Nice place to work and learn. I feel Microsoft Global Delivery is bit underpaid compared to market standard and Microsoft branding.

Pros

Good Learning, Nice campus, Good perks and benefits

Compensation is less, Now due to many Indian managers culture is degrading

Great place to work, so many opportunities

A great place to work, one of the best in industry. Sky is the limit when you come to learnings with a growth mindset. Absolutely works for working parents with the flexibility of work timings.

Pros

company culture, taking care of employees

Great co-workers and amazing work culture

People and management are consistently encouraging and supporting you to do better. They believe in the concept of wiling to learn rather than know it all. Easy flow of communication with any level of management. Pay is less but great benefits. I would always love to work for a company like Microsoft.

Pros

Benefits

Cons

Salary and Promotion is low and slow

No life for contract employees

You would really get a good hike from your last drawn salary.You would be treated as untouchables at work.They dont ask any questions beyond work.Pleaes dont believe your contract would be extended or you would be converted as full time employee in CE&S team.The team dont give you proper KT but will ask you all the work related questions.No benefits as Non FTE.You will learn nothing

Pros

Cab and Food

No growth

Good for Full-time

I joined as a vendor/contract/CSG employee, and tried to convert to a full time position in Microsoft. The ecosystem designed for a vendor/contract/CSG employee is demotivating and you will be treated like an outsider. Unless you are really capable and willing to put extreme efforts to convert to a full time position, do not put your time here. Conversion process is very political and confidential, and in spite of good efforts you may not get a conversion because of budgeting. I prefer to work on real client projects and that helps with a better skill gain, in MSFT you may end up just troubleshooting in your lab environments and your customers will not listen to your solutions.

Pros

Rapid Skill Gain

Cons

contract

Poor Management, lack of job security, work life is relaxed

The work life is better balanced than in other companies but the work is boring and the management is sluggish. The payscale is low, hence, not the best place to be in.

Most Employee Oriented Organisation

The basic thought process is to give maximum respect and comfort to each employee. Diversity is equally being taken care of. Benefits are at par with world's best organisations, or better than them.
