    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Colleagues are very friendly and sharp, competent people: many are recent graduates of local colleges and graduate programs. There is a great work atmosphere cultivated by leadership that has been with this department since it was acquired from Nokia years ago. There are opportunities to make a name for yourself and expand your skill set with challenging projects, but also tolerance for us older folks who need to prioritize a work-life balance at some point in their career. (And perhaps for that reason, this group has a better gender ratio and more parents than most companies or other divisions of Microsoft.) Open to occasional remote work.

    Cons

    Many colleagues who have been with the department a while are now at a senior level and have a hard time advancing further within the company. (There are only so many opportunities for management or high-level independent contributor positions, and even fewer are at the Boston office specifically.) It's a testament to the atmosphere of the team and the quality of the projects that these folks stick around. Not a problem if you are planning to come in at entry level and OK with potentially switching companies after a few years.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Microsoft (Cambridge, MA (US)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The process involved three one on one interviews at the Cambridge, MA office over the course of 4 hours. Two of the interviews were strictly technical and the other was behavioral and included a reasoning question. I heard back within a week of the interviews that I had gotten the offer and accepted it via a phone call with my recruiter.
