Microsoft is an incredible place to work. Honestly the people here do not know how good they have it! Free coconut water, soda, coffee, etc., good and inexpensive cafes, and lots of room to grow and be inspired. However the lack of communication and management style here is astonishing. They have a serious lack of quality leaders. Their isn’t enough of a team mentality, more of every woman for herself kind of place. But still an amazing place to work!

Industry leading engineering, culture forward and diverse organization. The shift across Microsoft over the past several years has been both prudent and earth shaking. Full steam ahead!
Working at Microsoft has been amazing! I feel they value their employees and love to train and promote from within. I have had the pleasure of working with a diverse group of individuals who value work relationships.

The salary, perks, and benefits exceed all of my former employers.
