Contract work is not worth it here for the money but job was easy

I worked as a contractor for MSFT and was grossly underpaid. Job was very easy and flexible. Job was kind of boring. No opportunity to get out of contract work.

Mediocre pay, but overall good place to work

Base salary is okay, but stocks are really minimal compared to other tech companies. Often you'll find your self out of things to work on and you need to really push hard with your manager to get visibility and subsequently promotion

Good pay

The work is very comfortable. I learned about team communication and social skills. The management cares for employees. Hardest part is learning. Enjoyable part is that I actually do not work here idiots.

Diverse and Inclusive work environment that was all about collaboration

I very much enjoyed my time at Microsoft. The team was terrific; the leadership cared about you, and the work was challenging. I would recommend anyone to join the great company.

Great place to work

I have worked for Microsoft multiple occasions as an FTae and contractor. All of the experiences have been positive. The culture is something that I really appreciate. You will find that there is always people who want to support you or give you great advice. They are focused on their employees to have a good balance between work and life. Professionally speaking, you'll find yourself understood and teams always welcome new ideas. Lots of resources and things you can learn. They are a great company focused on diversity and innovation.

I worked with HCA and I'm not really sure why indeed is showing Microsoft. I answered as if I were reviewing HCA.

I worked with HCA and I'm not really sure why indeed is showing Microsoft. I answered as if I were reviewing HCA. Working with HCA introduced me to a large blend of people that I would have never met had I stayed in El Paso before I moved to Dallas. It's a great environment to work in.


Advancement and you learn alot while in the hospitals.


Grinding work and long hours especially with an on call rotation.

Great work/life balance and great place to work

Microsoft, in my opinion, is one of the more relaxing companies to work at. However, there doesn't seem to be much growth for contractors unfortunately depending on your position and team. All the food is subsidized and not free as well.However, the people are great and the working environment is usually great as well.

Career Development

MSFT provides me an opportunity to learn new and exciting technologies, however, there is not a firm / clear career path for advancement. Given that MSFT is more of a products company, it still needs to mature its technology services organization.

Une entreprise dynamique et organisé dans son travail

Not recommended for newbies. Environment is not relaxing. The salary is not equal to the workload. Compensation and other benifits are not justifiable to the amount of work being done
