Its a company that is constantly changing and fast moving. They are also pushing forward at a very quick pass. They have a tendency to move at a pass so that information are not correctly flowing thru all levels.
Good experience a lots of new contacts and connections all around EOC huge range of new skills good opportunities to grew up and develop yourself in friendly multinational and multilingual company / team
Collections Analyst (Current Employee) – Dublin – 22 August 2016
The company culture should be clarified and more visible in the workplace so the employees identify themselves with both. Possibilities of progress within the company are very poor causing a high level of turnover. Also rewards and benefits are not clearly and professionally monitored.
Financial Analyst (Current Employee) – Dublin – 19 May 2016
Being privileged to work in the finance department for a software company, the atmosphere is slightly more relaxed and quieter while still maintaining a high level of professionalism. Our hours are flexible depending on deadlines like month end closing for example. The management treat all employees with the highest level of respect and praise. The hardest part of my job is probably the last 4 days of the month when we look towards closing the month end accounts. We generally are incredibly busy with journal entries and nominal postings for our consolidated accounts. As my roll is predominately operations so I enjoy taking on new challenges and daily tasks that fall my way.
Account Support Manager (Current Employee) – Dublin – 20 March 2016
Depending of each department, but if you are under a good manager they will develop your potential. It s company that will involve you in their plan and strategy, even if you dont know how it will impact you at your level but they do include you as part as one Microsoft. In Operation, they will require a lot of overtime and work WE and bank holidays in order to support the business.
Supply Chain Information Manager (Temporary Role) (Former Employee) – Leopardstown, D – 11 November 2015
would not like to be there, as there was no opportunity to move on, people belongs to small group , but great team work. Also senior manager was totally of knowledge how to manage and motivate team, not self controlling as it also would effect team work.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Dublin, – 14 September 2015
Microsoft Ireland is the ideal work environment. Not only will you grow in your career with excellent training opportunities but as a person you experience growth through respect and involvement in projects that affect and influence our world. Microsoft allowed me to grow as a person through involvement in various charities and fundraising for special causes. As a global organisation Microsoft staff are a diverse community so interaction with your colleagues is both enjoyable and rewarding. It is a fast paced ever changing business environment and I was allowed to participate and lead whenever needed and I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge.
Respect, training, new technology and constant oppertunity to grow.
Management could have been stronger, Communication occurs through out the team but retaining the information being shared was the issue. Constant updates and changes in protocol were made daily with very little training. Therefore errors and uncertainty are common.
Subsidized food and free food during overtime was nice and we had some other good perks including a pool table during quiet periods.
Future progression within the company is bleak as a new phase in the Company's sourcing will see many positions and work loads being sent abroad within the next 5 years.
Subsidized and free meals, excellent colleagues from all over, learning advanced Microsoft systems/programs
Constant overtime, high stress, not enough training, low incentive
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Dublin West, D – 3 July 2015
As I did not work directly for Microsoft but through CPM I was placed in various different stores around Dublin but the staff were always so friendly and would always help me if i didn't know something or I had a question
