Good facilities with good salary. One disadvantage is that we were hired as contracts. Good environment to work . As we were working for Microsoft corporation customers we have to do daily night shifts

I was with Microsoft IT. Most of the applications are 20 years old with no substantial investment in updating them. Most of the time went in bug fixing or resurrecting servers than in actual development.
Software Development Engineer II (Current Employee) – Hyderabad, Telangana – February 23, 2018
Big company, lots of people - and this is a problem. People are not assigned teams per their skill-set or capability. Also sometimes people are not hired in the right group or division within the company - this creates mismatch in expectations and overall job dissatisfaction.
Work benefits, chance to participate in global events, make good impact
A lot depends on the team in which one is place, hence a lot of luck factor. Not all teams are good.

Intern (Former Employee) – New Delhi, Delhi – January 16, 2018
I worked as an intern at Microsoft where I had done cloud computing project. It was a great experience and have learnt so many things. There is excellent environment for the freshers. Very friendly and innovative place to experience practical things.
As an intern I got a interesting data analysis project which also helped me change my career direction. I really like the way the project was managed with everyone having a clear set of aims and goals and yet collaborating to create something powerful.
It was a great experience working at Microsoft. I got to learn a lot and work on the latest technologies. The work progress is good. Various opportunities in terms of project work, leadership, learning new things are offered.
A typical day at work was good , stressless. I learned a lot from the team and fellow members about the work ethics. The management was wonderful. The workplace culture was absolutely wonderful. The hardest part of the job is not following the work ethics. The most enjoyable part of the job was the space to grow.
Place to learn and grow with opportunities at every step
Consultant (Former Employee) – Hyderabad, Telangana – January 4, 2018
Microsoft has a very open culture where people learn from each other and provide constant feedback for improvement of their subordinates as well as their peers. The managers are never micro-managing and give you endless opportunities to carve out your own career using the vast number of opportunities available within Microsoft. Microsoft encourages its employees to learn on the go and so the best of resources are available within a few clicks for free.
However, expectations from employees in Microsoft is similarly large, where you will be put to a new challenge every day and you would need to find your own way out, which might mean some sacrifice in the work life balance aspect.
