Very energetic, Fast paced work place with a strong undercurrent for challenging the status quo. Highly collaborative and driven by focus on customer needs and delight.
Extremly friendly policies
Too many layers of management
Microsoft is a great place to work and build one's skills in multiple areas. The access to cutting edge technology and Microsoft products and resources is, of course, unparalleled. Its workforce is highly motivated and talented, and opportunities to learn from colleagues are plentiful. Workplace culture is fairly relaxed but expectations are set high, and under-achievers do not last long. The hardest part of the job is keeping up with constant change, of everything from tools and technologies, to processes, procedures, goals, and expectations. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with a team of talented and hard-working individuals, based in locations around the world, all working together to enable our customers and partners to achieve more.
I fulfilled various roles and overcame myriad of challenges during my tenure at Microsoft. Starting as a Service Operations Engineer, I got to experience the essence of a software engineer by working as a Tester, Developer and a Program Manager. I thoroughly enjoyed my time especially working as a Program Manager on Microsoft BING® product. Along side got to be a part of many voluntary initiatives and organize fun events.
I had an opportunity to work with smartest people in the industry and thoroughly enjoyed every working day. I have got pretty good exposure to Microsoft Azure Services for Migrating on premise applications as well as building the PaaS applications.
Awesome culture and learning opportunity. Top management is highly focused. Work life balance is moderate Job security is moderate. Growth within HR is highly limited

Growth within HR is highly limited
Micrososft usually hire to fire them in next couple of years so as to retain their old team.They have culture that manager shall need to give the stack ranking to HR for their team.Most of times, the lowest one will be the new joinee in the team.It is clearly understable that how one guy who joined whithin a year will surpass the existing employess who has worked for more than 10 years. So to retain the existing folks....they will hire and keep the new joinee as bottom in ranking.They will not consider the hard work/ effort and value added during the one year.Because they will hire to fire next apprisal to retain the other team members. Hence if you are new to any team...please be careful... if your team has multiple members of new joinees, then your risk may be bit less. if you are the only one hired and all other guys are old folks.Then you are scapegoat. becareful.
stock bonus on hire, facilities
hire to fire. new joinees are at big risk, job security
