Good to work

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I learned stuff about software engineering and process and got better at code reviews. They have a lot of cool internal tools that help you do your job faster. I also learned more about testing, the importance of unit testing, the importance of not moving your code up to the next branch if a unit test fails and dealing with hundreds of people working on the same branch. The main languages used at microsoft is C, C++, C# and C++/CX (don’t ask). You’ll probably run into HTML 5, javascript and CSS depending on your team. So like I said, cool tools and some good processes in place to help you become a better software engineer. The downside is that they limit themselves on technology they use (this could be changing since Satya is our CEO). What I mean by this is I’ve never really heard people talk about Unix, perl, python, Java or other languages. It’s like they don’t exist. I find this to be limiting.

Good working experience

The job was tough initially but then I got used to it. The office environment is friendly and meritocratic. The boss was good. Salary and benefits are pretty average though.

Great company but your experience depends on the manager

The senior management has the right intent. However, since it's a very big company an individual experience depends a lot on one's manager. If the dynamics of one's group is highly political, one can't advance without playing that game. Otherwise, it's a good company with interesting problems to solve.

Pros

stability, stock, work

Cons

politics, managers can make or break your career

I don't recommend joining CSS is good career move. Don't ruin your career joining CSS if you come from development background.

best for short term, i mean 1-2 years as it becomes difficult to get out of this support profile either within Microsoft or outside Microsoft.Perhaps you could join and plan to move sooner.

Pros

There are numerous pros in terms of health benefit, cafeteria, insurance, goodies etc.

Cons

CSS -Support profile

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

Cons

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

My Role at Microsoft was very competitive & productive in Finance.

Microsoft was my dream Company to work with. The employees & the management were equally good & interactive. Microsoft takes ultimate care of the employees. I feel, those who work with MS will feel more convenient than compared to any of their previous Org.
