Does Microsoft Have Good Work-Life Balance and Flexibility?
  • "While we have the technology to work remotely from anywhere, it still feels like for some groups it is frowned upon to work remotely on a regular basis. I wish it was fine to work wherever you need to work from whenever you wanted. I think we'll get there eventually. This definitely varies by org. I'm in Finance, but I know other people in Sales who work remotely 99% of the time between traveling to customers or working from home. "
  • "The hours are flexible but the workload can be heavy so you're still squeezing in the 50 hours of work, but you can decide if you do it at 10am or midnight."
  • "Microsoft is generally flexible with work hours or arrangements, however needs to include remote opportunities as an accepted part of the culture."
  • "most employees are afraid to request flexible hours even tho most have the option. not want to appear not doing their part. only employees who have their boundaries due to experience are comfortable with flexible hours and work from home schedule."
  • "There is flexibility for working from home, but the hours are very long."
