Great benefits package. Small team environment can be lead to no trajectory and awkward work environment. Long work days but rotation shifts 4x12s one week. 3 x12s the following week.

Great job, worth the experience

The Resource Management team at Microsoft for both the Premier side of the business and the Microsoft Consulting Services side of the business was a great experience. It's a great position to learn about how the Services org and the MCS org operates. I felt the compensation was fair.

slowly losing it

Let's be very blunt about something and get straight to the point. Microsoft clearly and overwhelmingly hires and favors individuals from India. Also after working for Microsoft I see why their software and devices are inferior. The organization is very slow at development. They suck at marketing. They had a spectacular run in the past. The salaries are actually low at microsoft and they overwhelmingly hire temps. This is a organization that is gradually losing it. Google and Apple are far far better in every way.

Great place to work at

Love the place. Very female and maternity friendly. Knowledgable people. If you come from a start up, you will be shocked by how much process and overhead you will have to go through to build the tiniest feature. But you’ll get ised to it

Respect, Collaboration, Innovation, and Connection

I am so grateful to work for a company that encourages authenticity, a growth mindset, and collaboration over individual success at the expense of others. I have a manager I trust who trusts their manager which creates a place where I can dig in and work hard , taking risks and exploring new ideas. Microsoft's commitment to Diversity and Inclusion is real. I see it every day in the way I and others are supported in changing the workforce and the climate of daily life!

Amazing experience

I was an Explore Intern at Microsoft on the Redmond, Washington campus. I loved my team, mentors, managers, and hanging out with all of the fellow interns!

Good company, bad culture

Benefits are great but culture has really gone downhill. They don't have a great structure or support system in place for new hires making it hard for new grads to get on projects

Great work culture and get to learn a lot.

Great pay and benefits & perks. Great work culture and get to learn a lot. At times feel lot of work pressure handling multiple projects at the same time.

I enjoyed working at Microsoft. The company culture is respectful for the employees in general. The compensation is good.

I had some flexibility and autonomy with my work schedule. It was really great when my child was small and I had to pick him up from daycare or school. The culture is respectful in general, and there are lots of smart and caring people there. Layoffs are not fun and demoralizing, but I suppose it's part of the game for a big tech like Microsoft. Since it's a huge organization, there are dependencies and bureaucracies. And it's sometimes hard to see the impact of your work.


Good work life balance. Positive culture.

Contractors are treated as second class. Team culture really depends on business manager.

I've been working at Microsoft for a few months now, and I must say, it's been an absolute dream come true! From the moment I stepped into the iconic campus, I felt like I was part of something truly extraordinary.

Benefits good, culture cringe

I loved the opportunity to learn new skills and the benefits, but the Company culture is really forced down your throat. It feels inauthentic.

Great workplace

Great workplace, work life balance is a huge plus working here, however, there is no job stability, especially with the layoffs, anyone could be effected.

Great Company

Great benefits, pay and culture. Constantly changing priorities due to advancement in technology but overall, a great company to work for. Lean as much as possible and obtain Microsoft certifications for relevant advancement opportunities.

Good Place to work

Good place to work. Management can be a little troubling at times. Pay is like any other tech company. Benefits are amazing and all the little perks pay off.
