US Public Sector, Government Marketing Solutions (Current Employee) – Reston, VA – May 27, 2015
My typical day is spent creating multiple tactical plans that help support product adoption. I've learned a great deal about how to manage various marketing projects with limited tools and resources, while sharpening my time management skills. The employees across Microsoft are very smart and are part of a culture that is focused on driving product metrics.
Software Design Engineer in Test (Former Employee) – Mountain View, CA – November 20, 2015
I can't find any faults on Microsoft except for it's too big. Lots of talented engineers and so lots of competitions. Only downside is Lot of politics especially when there are many Indians or Chinese people who mostly have a network within themselves. But when you have talent, nobody can do any bad to you.
Technical Project Manager (Current Employee) – Redmond, WA – November 12, 2015
the people one works with are very intelligent and passionate about their successes. Competition is high and mostly healthy. I enjoy working here because it is always a challenge. I constantly learn new things and am allowed to be creative with my work. the days can be long but that is expected when dealing with a global product.
Upper management has a few spots that need improvement. One at the moment is that they tend to listen to the squeaky wheels instead of the team as a whole.
Software Test Engineer, Compatibility Team Lead (Current Employee) – Redmond, WA – November 2, 2015
During my time with Microsoft I learned countless valuable skills and tools. While I was working a contract with a limited time frame, my responsibilities and pay expanded after I displayed my competence in different areas.
Senior Financial Analyst (Current Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – October 30, 2015
Great company with very flexible working status and a great atmosphere to be under although stressful but it is emotional. It is a challenging company given it is fast paced and the group I worked with is mostly in Latin America therefore at times the coordination can be a little difficult to manage but it is fun. The company knows how to work hard and play hard as well. Given that during the hectic days they offer Savory Bites, Message, Bring Your Kids to Work Day and plenty of charity events in order to help the community.
Principal Consulting Delivery Manager (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 24, 2015
Microsoft Consulting is a very immature organization. Consulting Management attempt to mimic big 4 and other larger technology consulting organization. Too much focus on process and not enough on customer and product.
New interesting technologies but challengies to get them to consumer
