    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent compensation/benefits, training opportunities, work/life balance, positive atmosphere, promotes internally, active in the community, excellent line of products and services.

    Cons

    A company people seem to love to hate without just cause. Extremely large company, can be easy to get lost in the crowd if one isn't careful. "Diversity hires" equate to a backwards sort of racism (though, that's more a product of society than the company itself).

    Advice to Management

    Remember that it's difficult to face endless negativity about the company from customers and outsiders, even off the clock. The positive atmosphere is great, but keep the excitement alive.

    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.
