Fun workplace
Overall the whole experience at Microsoft is good, the only down side was that the management team weren't to the level of the company's culture.
They are amazing benefits where are very practical.

Worst job I ever had
If I went to the whole sorry experience I would be here forever.

They changed my job, the day I started, I was bullied and not respected and they are more interested in being politically correct than anything else.
Cons
dishonest, bullying

I can work from home which is flexible but I wish i have more pay after 3 years.
There is little exposure to move around in the company which does not provide room for growth

Fast Paced and Innovative
The work was fast paced with a good team of people who were supportive and open. It was satisfying as the team was working on a complex and challenging migration piece that the client had been unable to resolve internally. We successfully completed the work and later won a second batch of work based on the teams reputation.

Professional and Collaborative
Working with great products and part of a team that is championing best practice within both technology and candidate interaction.
There is a lot scope to learn new things and take on additional assignments to really push yourself whilst also providing security and assistance from a multitude of teams.

Business culture has changed dramatically over the last few years and Microsoft is great place to provide both professional challenge whilst also respecting personal limitations and priorities.

If you are looking to part of a growing business that is changing the way the world works for the good then I would highly recommend as an employer.

Great place of work
Having the ability to work in one of the world's leading technology companies comes with its benefits. Every other company wants me now. Therefore I have nothing but praise for them. It only gets stressful towards launch dates.

Productive, competitive work place
Working at Microsoft is fun and at the same time competitive. The management is very helpful and supportive. Work culture wise, they are very flexible and believe in supporting their employees to their best capacity. The most enjoyable part of the job is that they allow you to speak your mind and all ideas are welcome. Salary wise, generally they pay less than the market average or expected.

Excellent place to work
Microsoft is an excellent place to work - Its a world leading technology company and yet you feel as if you are individually making a difference everyday. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to succeed in the industry to always consider working at Microsoft.

Difficult place to work
Good people, no structure and Management, it is all about the number. Very little collaboration with good people as everyone is driven to exceed targets. Other large organisations I worked for realised its about teamwork.
Pros
Excellent benefits
Cons
Long hours firefighting
