    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (less than a year)


    The team is really great. People are helpful and friendly. It's a growing team with new guys joining every week. We are all young and energetic, share lots of interests in common. It's really lots of fun working with them.


    We are working on a huge code base built with lots of out-of-date techs. Most of the senior guys are in Redmond which makes things worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's really a great place for working however it would be even better if we could slow down and focus more on infrastructure. That would be developers' life much more easier.
