Overall Great place to work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Depending on your team, you can have a very relaxed work environment. Generally lots of collaborative work. Salary and benefits could be better. General culture/morale is really good.

Good and bad

I had a mixed experience. Induction was good and I had alot of support from the team.Long hours (way more than on contract), as a global company you work on other time zones as well as your own. This is a challenge, particularly if you have a family.Huge emphasis on networking for further job opportunities, which can feel quite fake at times, for me I struggled with it.

Pros

Most people are awesome Office is beautiful Free tea/coffee/soft drinks/fruit

Cons

Long hours, Not the best pay for the work you do, Corporate culture oozes through the facade, Some people are not so awesome.

Fantastic Environment

Really loved my time in MS, started on a 3 month contract and advanced to more senior role and permanent position. Great people to work with always felt like I was lucky to be surrounded by such good people who always had time to support you. Fantastic benefits and life/work balance.

Pros

People, Life Balance, Benefits, Progression Opportunities

Cons

Really can't think of any, i'd only be nit picking.

Productive and fun place to work

Flexibility, dynamic environment, brand, newest technologies.It was great at an early stage in my career to be exposed to so many smart people. A wonderful environment to learn in. I would highly recommend the experience.

Good corporate culture and nice team

Overall workplace is nice. A lot of training's are provided. For future I guess that such jobs will be performed from home or automated but as I said you are in top 10 fortune company of the world and you expect to have this high level.

Messy place, great fun, lots of challenges

This work place is quite unique, you will meet people from all over the world, and thanks to a great Job Culture make lots of friends This place is a great starting point in your career but you won't be paid much compared to other companies and given the tasks/responsibilities you will have Several times they "helped" my find the right role given my skills but not much has changed In general I would never leave if they would pay me enough or find the right job for my skills

Pros

like a big family: is nice to work with you friends

Cons

like a big family: some great people sometimes poor leadership, wage

Searching the directory

Microsoft is a great place to work, but the knowledge of tall the tools is spread around many many many libraries of knowledge and it's really hard to grasp your head around all the tolls offered. You have a lot of liberty to focus and create, but it's hard to find your way but you take a lot of pride into your work.

buen ambiente de trabajo, instalaciones limpias , comodas y suficiente espacio para poder realizar las labores diarias

Increible ambiente de trabajo, gran diversidad cultural y gran respeto por cada trabajador. Jornadas laborales largas durante los cierre de mes y año fiscal, pero grandes incentivos y dias libres para descansar y volver al trabajo con energia.

Low salary, long hours and overtime, no employment engagement initiatives
