Microsoft Employee Review

Fast-paced, rewarding

Global meeting in the morning to get everyone up to speed about the latest development, weekly check-in with global training partners on the status of current and upcoming projects, online presentation to schools, focus time for personal development, lunch with colleagues, complete any outstanding work, work through the challenges and possible solutions, seek advice, unwind before stopping work. Management team seemed distant in Singapore compared to the US. Very little interaction between management and its staff /team members - they only work with their direct reportees (middle managers). Middle managers has a lot of autonomy over how they run their teams, this would be a challenge for the team if they have a poor or bad leader. The hardest part about the job is when you have an unnurturing boss and one who will keep putting you down in whatever you do. The most enjoyable part of the job is you know how meaningful your work is, and you derived the highest satisfaction from doing the work.


Meaningful work, high job satisfaction


Pressure to meet sales target, bad leadership (my direct boss)

Collaborative and good work life balance

People working there are amazing and very collaborative. Very good atmosphere. You can have good work life balance as you are empowered to choose when to WFH.
