    Pros

    great culture, always trying to improve, company is starting to turn things around after missing the device revolution boat on the consumer side, lots of career opportunities (if you're an FTE)

    Cons

    just like any big company lots of red tape to get anything done, contractors are treated like a different class of people

    Advice to Management

    start treating your contractors like real people, and give local regions more autonomy to do apply optimal strategies to their own markets

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Microsoft (Sydney).

    Interview

    Multiple Interviews went well, but then encountered one whose only intention seemed to trip me up. The process is flawed as hires need to be unanimous & this persons lack of interview skills blocked an otherwise good experience.
