    I have been working at Microsoft

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Lots of learnings, career progression and being treated well despite some normal corp. hick-ups

    Cons

    workforce reduction and performance management of people is out of control. Managing out since4-5 years about 40% of people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    do structural changes once and not salami tactics. It destroys morale and culture. Remember "Culture eats strategy for breakfast (Peter Drucker, Warren Buffet)". So put culture 1st and strategy 2nd.

    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.
