    Good company to work but it's a little bit hassle that you have to deal with a lot of office political games.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time

    Pros

    Great people, comfortable environment, good training and of course good pay with benefits.

    Cons

    Sometimes I think MSFT people spend too much time in office political games and I'm not sure if MSFT has already found its right direction as a company.

    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview Details

    Applied through Campus career fair, got email from HR to schedule on campus interview in a few weeks, first round interview on campus/I had a fair negative experience interviewing at Microsoft, the first time the interviewer didn't show up and missed all the candidate interviews in the morning ( There were about 8 of us) and the second time since I got another offer I emailed the HR asking if I could get my feedback from the interview and they simply informed me that there was no record of my interview feedback. This is pretty disappointing and I don't think it leaves me a very good impression about Microsoft.
