    Microsoft is a great company with a solid vision, but just needs a little something extra to make it back to relevancy.

    Current Contractor - Anonymous Contractor

    I have been working at Microsoft as a contractor (more than a year)


    Good life/work balance, opportunities to work abroad, continual role progression, love activity based working (ie. no more cubicles!)


    High levels of bureaucracy, office politics play a major factor in being "successful", limited understanding at a corp level on what really happens in local markets, contractors treated completely different to full time staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more risks, be willing to back yourselves, remove red tape and let local markets make their own decisions on how to best service their customers, treat your contractors like real people!

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview Details

    Application was straight forward with a cover letter, resume and other common questions. This was then followed up by an online interview where you had to answer some questions, mostly standard ones like name your best qualities etc. After that it was an assessment centre involving two presentations and one final interview with one of the managers. As a note they included both in the same day.
