Former Employee - Staffing Consultant in Redmond, WA
Former Employee - Staffing Consultant in Redmond, WA

I worked at Microsoft as a contractor (more than 10 years)

Pros

As an 18 Veteran of Microsoft, I openly express my fondest appreciation for all that Microsoft has instilled in me as a young adult growing up in an ever-changing culture in terms of ethics, personal values, teamwork, accountabilities, how to set clear objectives, exceed my goals, strive for work- life balance, build relationships, work intimately with customers and partners, build products and services and learn to how deal with ambiguity in Corporate America. Whew these are just a few!

Microsoft will and has the capability to exceeed your career goals beyond your wildest expectations! Lending you opportunities to make a difference personally and for millions of customers worldwide.

If you are an individual who strives for EXCELLENCE - Microsoft is the place for you!

Cons

Seriously - I drank too much diet coke - FREE soda and beverages every day!
There are 95K employees the company - Stay Networked!
Be sure you keep in mind - Your CAREER consists of 3 parts - Microsoft, your manager and you. It takes all three of you to make it go!

Wear your badge proudly!
