Okay to Work
Software Development Engineer II (Current Employee) –  Hyderabad, TelanganaFebruary 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.
Pros
Work benefits, chance to participate in global events, make good impact
Cons
A lot depends on the team in which one is place, hence a lot of luck factor. Not all teams are good.

Productive and fun place. Excellent work life balance
User Experience Designer (Former Employee) –  Hyderabad, IndiaFebruary 20, 2018
At Microsoft, everyone is encouraged to work for not only the work dedicated but also for their personal growth. Flexible job hours, and ability to work from home when required.
Work management is very organized and follows a great sprint culture to assign and finish jobs in time.
A lot of fun activities are lined up for employees so they take out time to have some recreation time.

MSD Duty Manager (Former Employee) –  Bengaluru, KarnatakaJanuary 8, 2018
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, TelanganaJanuary 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.
Pros
Perks and opportunities for self development
Cons
Work-life balance
