Great employer with greater scope in the market.

Microsoft is a great employer when it comes to facilities, compensation and benefits. It has added great value for me to have been a part of the organization for more than 2 years. When it comes to operations, it is a highly demanding and results focused environment. HR Intranet, internal HR policies and other HR related information is vast and could be found on various websites within the Microsoft Web. This at times is challenging for a quick view while we are online with the employee trying to resolve their queries. Work Life balance depends on which project you are as the HR Ops Associates may not have complete control on certain processes and may need to go out of their normal way to fetch information and resolve. Overall, it is a win win situation if you are highly skilled professional and open to challenges at every point.


Brand, Compensation and Benefits.


Long Hours at work and insufficient information on HR Intranet.

fun working with microsoft

As i was a fresher at that point of time, learned a lot of new stuffs as in like the work culture and how to behave at the work place, which made me a matured man form being a boy. it was really interesting working with them as it was too technical and since i was a guy who always liked technologies. it made me learn and showed me how to implement stuffs which i had within.


amazing infrastructure

great place that can still get better

its a great place in terms of perks, payment. also you get to see the latest technology and fast paced environment, with the most effective and competent colleagues. However, the competition is cut-throat, you need to be really quick and competent. career progression is slow.


great perks


slow career advancement

Unchallenging atmosphere

The benefits and salary are only advantage, no scope of growth. It is not suitable for someone who is looking to grow in career. It is more suitable for someone who is just looking for a steady income month on month basis.

Productive and fun place with awesome people

8- 6 day with 10am daily meeting with manager and field analysis improved my analytical skills and communication skills while improving on my budgeting skills. management was awesome always had daily games in order to relax the employees. first experience with the co- workers had ups and downs but as the time went they all turned out to be great. Because of the long hours missed a tons of Barcelona's matches. The daily meetings and games, they were hilarious.


Free lunches, daily fun activities


10 hours long days

A most learning guaranteed environment with fun to work

Days work would be to resolve issues related to Exchange Server. Kind of interesting workplace where learning and work comes together. Day on day basis the issues which we take would differ due to high customer customization and interesting resolutions for unique cases. Management is supportive to employees creative ideas and a good team to go along. The most enjoyable part would be my team, where people understand each other and help everyone getting to the top.
