Very cut throat environment, watch your back. Salaries are appropriate for level and stock options are exceptional. Growth opportunities are limited in senior roles and everyone is expendable.
Pros
Great pay and benefits
Cons
Zero job security after age 40

I didn't have a desk at the Xbox campus. Amenities for that campus were solid. I could always get coffee there reliably as well as a meal. Plenty of parking

I had a wonderful experience working here. My manager gave me a lot of flexibility to pursue my intellectual goal. The internship encourages taking new challenges and publish the work. Everyone is very helpful and help to learn new skills.

Everyday was a challenge of my potential, but that was my favorite part of the job. Every day was different in which challenge I would receive, and at the time it seemed more than what I could do. However, I excelled every task given to me. Microsoft showed me more of myself than I knew, and showed me more of what I am capable of.

I enjoyed working with the engineers and recruiting some good talent. Management was somewhat unrealistic about the amount of guidelines I was expected to follow.

My job was right up my alley at MS. However, the work went offshore, so job security was lacking. The building and business was inspiring and innovative.

A productive work environment with all the process done in a systematic way with all the documentation and scrum meetings. Learning new things and interacting with the team is the most enjoyable part of the Job.

Microsoft has a great work-life balance culture. They want their employees to work hard but also enjoy life outside of work. I enjoyed my time at the company

Microsoft is a matrix org. Every employee must be able and willing to adapt to changing needs that revolve around the customer, Diversity and Inclusion, and compliance. Feedback is crucial to learning in respect to both giving and receiving feedback.
