Former Employee - Desktop Support Engineer in Lisbon (Portugal)

I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Open and friendly environment. Access to technology and outstanding resources. Great oportunity to work alongside with the greatest minds of the IT Industry. Strong commitment to Work/Life Balance.
Recognition. These are just some of the things I can say and that I've experienced from working in MSFT Support.

Cons

I can't think of anything to say on this matter. Except maybe that it does not have any cons. Best Place to Work awards several years in a row make my point.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I never, at any time, felt I was mislead as to what my objectives were in Microsoft. From day one we all knew what we were working to achieve. I can say that, in my opinion, Management was both a helping hand and someone that recognizes when you've done a good job. Probably the best people I've ever worked for.
