operating systems group Job Reviews
I have worked here for almost 2 years. As a whole, Microsoft doesn't do a great job supporting college hires integrate into the larger Microsoft community. However, Microsoft has many tools, trainings and employee resource networks in place to guide current employees in their career growth, so if you are resourceful, can handle the soul-crushing reality of office politics,and are comfortable being the only women and/or only under-represented minority on your team(and how that plays out in a patriarchal capitalist white supremacist institution)...then you may succeed here. However, the importance of having a manager who is your advocate and willing to help you grow cannot be stressed enough!!! If you don't feel like your manager (your boss's boss) supports your growth and recognizes your value, leave your team ASAP. Build up your credibility by proving your engineering prowess if you are a software engineer/program manager. If you did not graduate with a degree in Computer Science, keep this information to yourself lest you be marked as incompetent or less-experienced. The work/life balance at Microsoft seems more reasonable than other tech giants. Also, last warning...be cautious of the work you sign up for...women have a tendency to be assigned devalued work...be sure that you are very cautious when taking on new assignments.
