Program Manager II (Current Employee) – Herndon, VA – October 14, 2016
Although it is a tough job, I've had the pleasure of working with some great people who helped me grow tremendously in my professional capacity. The job allowed me great flexibility and lived by the motto "doesn't matter where you work from, or when you work, as long as the job gets done".

Lab Technician Contractor (Current Employee) – Redmond, WA – January 8, 2018
I would only recommend people who are slightly interested in the tech field to get this job. Other than that I would steer clear away from this job. The turnover rate is horrendously high because of the lack of management and hours they provide. People are nice but this job doesn't get many bills paid off. If you're here for more of the experience and not for the money (not like they really give you that many hours to begin with) then this is the right job for you.
Good company but company culture may vary in different department
Business Analyst Manager (Current Employee) – Redmond, WA – January 7, 2018
It is a good company to work with, however your manager or skip manager has all power in your annual review, bonus and career advancement. CEO is driving a better company culture but it is still quite different by departments.
Contractor (Former Employee) – Redmond, WA – January 6, 2018
Having spent a fair amount of the last decade on campus, I have experienced the decline of campus culture somewhat. The global push for accountability has relieved many vendors of their positions and put heavier workloads on MS FTEs.
Development Manager (Former Employee) – Redmond, WA – January 6, 2018
Microsoft at the time was a very challenging, quick paced, nimble environment. During my tenure, I experienced nine reorganizations within six years. Each management team had a different view of how my team should operate. It was the incredibly long hours over many years that led to my departure. I felt well paid and respected.
Customer Service Advocate (Former Employee) – Irving, TX – January 5, 2018
Position I held at Microsoft was contracted through Volt Workforce Solutions and Compcon Tech. Working Contract you are not eligible for the same benefits as a Microsoft employee. Overall the pay was great and the environment was very relaxed. Received the right amount of training to effectively do my job and after contracts ends you have an opportunity to work in a different department allowing for more training. Great job overall.

Contract Concept Artist (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – January 4, 2018
Microsoft was a really great place to work at. They had a beautiful campus, good food at the cafeterias. It depends on the team you get on but my team had a really great group of people and everyone was very respectful of each other.
Amazing management, intriguing product facing team
Visual Designer (Former Employee) – Redmond, WA – January 4, 2018
I have worked at Microsoft on and off for four years. I have had the pleasure to work on a variety of exciting new projects, under managers who truly care about their employees and products. It can be hard to transition from contractor to full time, but that would really by my only gripe about working for Microsoft. They strive to have a very open, inclusive environment. I feel the company has come a long way sine the age where engineers ruled the software world.
