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

    Pros

    There are many advantages to working at Microsoft. The culture is all about learning, growing and working together to deliver the company's mission. Microsoft has many employee advantages. Microsoft allows international internal transfers. CEO listens to people during an internal Q&A every month.

    Cons

    Because it's a large organization it can get confusing on who to contact whenever an issue arises and requires a different team to help out. There are a lot of things to retain and remember in terms of policy, organizational structure, who's who.

    Advice to Management

    The Senior Leadership team is doing a great job. While Microsoft isn't perfect. They listen to feedback and concerns of employees whenever an issue comes up.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Vancouver, BC) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Tout d'abord un test de personnalité avec des mises en situation et notre réaction à ce scénario. Ensuite un entretien video interposé, avec des questions posées et une minute pour y répondre.
