    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Really good company, great benefits, very safe job, manageable work-life balance. Satya Nadella and his team are extremely visionary. This company has a long way to go.

    Cons

    Growth can be very slow. Great company to start when you need good projects and brand and to end your career when you need a good work-life balance. Not the best for people looking for hypergrowth in their career.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on growing people and make salaries comparable to Silicon Valley.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Montreal, QC) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Le processus d'entretien est divisé en deux parties: Au début, on te passe un entretien par skype ou sur le campus de l'université puis si jamais tu es passé on t'invite à leur campus pour le tour final des entrevues.
