    Current Contractor - Workplace Experience Coordinator in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at Microsoft

    Pros

    I like how all the teams are separated but at the same time they work together to keep a culture within the company by supporting each other's events and promoting their work across the company. The office space is great, lunch provided on the main engineering site, snacks, relax/game area and organized.

    Cons

    Sometimes people dress like they are at home and there is no dressing code at all at least at the office . Flip-flops to work, pajamas, and sweat pants are some of the things you will see at this office. In occasions, some of the FTE are very mean to lower rank employees as if they were better than them.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    microsoft overall is great: Satya is an amazing leader, wide breadth of products and services, etc

    Cons

    The Communications Organization at Microsoft is like a sorority-house where all the individuals are white and come from the same agency. They're not very analytically-minded at all and shun all from any other backgrounds. They gossip constantly because they are not rationally-minded and are terrible at mathematics. They're also all from the PNW and seem to have trouble with people with having individuals from other parts of the world, resulting in an incredibly insular and ignorant culture. The male leadership is pretty sexist.

    As an intern, probably not. though I certainly feel there are some politics among the full-times, interns were not just here for the summer
