There is an amazing 'work - life' balance at Microsoft who value employees as their greatest assets.

Partner Technical Consultant (Current Employee)
Bangalore (India)

ProsAmazing work - life balance
Fantastic facilities
Supportive work culture
Very skilled co-workers

ConsToo much focus on numbers

Advice to Senior ManagementThe number based rating shouldn't be too much emphasized and pushed through, so that talented and skilled people will continue focus on quality and other non-quantifiable values like enthusiasm and calmness

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Decent company. More democratic than others. Heavy politics.
