Mission: Come to Microsoft to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.
I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than a year)
The company has changed completely under Satya. It strives to do the best that it can with people and products.
It is still a big company. Lots of policies and procedures. Has trouble figuring out how to best manage and develop remote workforce.
Advice to Management
Consider that only 50% of the workforce is in Redmond.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Microsoft (Redmond, WA).
5 to 6 interviews single day 1 hour each. Coding-based. You have to code on the whiteboard. Prepare data structures, algorithms, writing code. The first 3-4 decide if the hiring manager is going to interview you. Out of the first 3-4, you need to try to nail them all.
