Benefits package is very good and comprehensive. In the UK you receive a group pension (5% you contribute, MS contributes 7%). Life insurance, accident insurance, critical illness all for a few pounds a month. As I was travelling, I also received approx. £6000 a year to use my personal car or I could take a company car. I liked the ability to buy and sell holidays (5 per year), in years where I knew I would be travelling, I would receive 27 days of paid leave (at 5 years this goes from the standard 25 to 27), then I would purchase 5 giving me a total of 33 holidays in addition to public holidays. However, given that you are so busy with work activities, it could be a struggle to take these as even if you are on holiday that isn't a good enough reason for a sale not to go through or a deal to slip. There are many other positive benefits I was aware of such as child care and company vouchers but these weren't needed by me. Microsoft pays you below the industrial average, my base pay could easily have been £20k extra at an external company and due to a frustrating promotional experience, this was the reason I left. And a year later I'm glad i did, as it has been an even more positive experience with better pay at Salesforce.
Microsoft is a really good company to work for.
Great immigration assistance for foreign employees; annual $800 fitness reimbursement program; company matching contribution to HSA and 401K; company matching volunteering hours and donations to non-profits.
Good menu of options paid via salary sacrifice
Depend on the size of the team, as everyone cant do well.
Lots of selectable benefits but in reality the system is extremely tricky to understand and use.
