    Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Bangalore (India)
    Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Bangalore (India)

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Better compensation, lucrative joining bonus
    - Cafeteria, well stocked pantry
    - Good giving campaigns, yearly round of charitable giving
    - Open to lateral movements across teams, locations
    - Supports distance learning and even funds some of the well recognized courses!

    Cons

    - Bad culture. I have no idea how the bangalore office has turned out to have a culture so distant from what Microsoft elsewhere is known for. Diversity, inclusion and friendly people - all are lacking here. You get hired now.. you are more certain to feel lonely, marginalized and left to fend for yourselves.
    - Middle of a massive realignment. MS is undergoing a top to bottom shakeup and reorg which can leave you uncertain of coming times. But if you are old timer at Microsoft, perhaps it is a cause for much joy. Certain teams in Bing and BingAds is undergoing a swift move to agility and with no clear focus on what to aim for, teams are trying what feels best for them and most are re-engineering what other tech giants like Goog, Amzn have solved well for years. Things like Disaster management, CI all are getting solved for now. Seems like a decade old problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Train junior employees on Diversity and Inclusion .
    - Define Bangalore centers charter. Hold regular all hands to list accomplishments of teams.
    - Be responsible for bangalore centers place in the organization.
