Productive and Fun workplace

A typical day at work would involve checking emails for any communication required and then check the taskboard to be on par with the timeline of the sprint. After that start working after the scrum calls and would end with a status update.

Place to learn and grow with opportunities at every step

Microsoft has a very open culture where people learn from each other and provide constant feedback for improvement of their subordinates as well as their peers. The managers are never micro-managing and give you endless opportunities to carve out your own career using the vast number of opportunities available within Microsoft. Microsoft encourages its employees to learn on the go and so the best of resources are available within a few clicks for free. However, expectations from employees in Microsoft is similarly large, where you will be put to a new challenge every day and you would need to find your own way out, which might mean some sacrifice in the work life balance aspect.

Pros

Perks and opportunities for self development

Cons

Work-life balance

This is not the Product Arm

If you are thinking this is the product arm of microsoft, then you are wrong. This is just like any typical services company. Lot of politics played by managers to save their own jobs. They do not care for the career progression of their reportees.

Pros

Benefits like Fitness Reimbursements

Cons

No Career Growth

New technologies are fun to work on but too much work pressure

Lots of additional work outside a typical project work. At the end you are judged on those additional work and not on the successful delivery to your customers.

Great place to work with plenty of opportunities

One of the great work environments with independence to choose your individual career paths. Free subscriptions to the latest software and training makes it a great place for learning and exploring.

fun based work

i got best platform where i got explored about the things which i don't know before i got feel typical in this field when i am unable to convince to customer at the time of interaction. leaned so much in this company let us say example how to tackle the questions which is not related to your profession,team leading,team management,got to know about competition and many more.the platform where i worked got superior co workers understanding the circumstances. the hardest part of the job is promotion and growth.

Shameless Leadership Under Microsoft Brand

Too much of politics which is also accepted by some leaders in social conversations but nothing has been done to change it. I worked for 10 years under Microsoft brand. I saw some great leaders across the board but the GD leadership was the worst I came across. It was shameful to work under some of the leaders in GD. Thank God I took decision on time to quit.

Pros

Brand Microsoft, Its employee benefits nothing great from GD itself.

Cons

to many to list but the politics scores at highest.
