Teams and organizations vary in terms of the number of total women and their culture. My team has a number of other women, and I've never felt that fact has made my job or my environment less pleasurable. Overall, my coworkers (male or female) have treated me with respect. Leadership (though primarily male) have been forthcoming about wanting and growing a diverse workspace.
Microsoft has made some missteps over time, but in general there is a strong and genuine commitment to diversity. I think after Satya's karma comment our leadership really sought to understand and then harness the value diversity brings to the business. I trust the leadership here, I am able to balance a demanding role with the demands of a growing family at home, and I love my job.
Started working for this company straight out of University. While I am definitely a minority among engineering roles, I never felt like "the girl". I am always treated similarly to my male counterparts and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience and culture here.
I have so far very positive experiences with the company. I am now about to go on maternity and parental leave. I hope I will find a supportive environment, and that my return after the leave periods will be pleasant. I hope to work there many more years to come. My current role and team are great! Let's see what happens.
I've worked at Microsoft for about two years and have already had two roles based on strong performance in my first job. I really enjoy the level of flexibility provided including the ability to manage my own schedule and work in the ways I'm most successful.
