talented co-workers, people from prestigious institution, free and awesome food and beverages. almost free transportation (fixed 500/month within 25km), hackathon.

Dislikes

I'm not rating Microsoft as whole, but the product that i worked. Work is not challenging, repeating. not much focus on the quality of code delivered rather deliver early and fix bugs later. And this becomes extremely unmanageable later which leads to hectic, late nights, work on week ends, LI (on call duty) escalations. Seen too much changes in a year (my team got 4 different component/area in a year, which is not technically too much different from others but the ownership changes). On top too much burden on the senior developers (spending majority of time in non technical stuffs). Pulling in a senior dev late night LI on call bridge. You are taken for granted as resource in the company. Without prior information and communication next morning your team changed and of course manager as well, this happened with me. After all these chaotic, ill managed team, a simple mistake of yours propagate badly in your connect session with manager. Having said all these, I could accept all these if there are good chance of learning.

The work culture is good, the compensation and benefits are good, the work environment is excellent. The cab facilities and cafeteria are all amazing!

Dislikes

There are certain managers who have no idea what they are doing. Sometimes I wonder how a company like Microsoft can keep such jerks! My manager in MS is an example. I have never seen such a crooked minded and racist(dividing the north Indians and south Indians) manager. He is not even a manager, he was an incident manager(ticketing manager) and I have no idea how he became the people manager for one of the best teams(Skype for Business) in Microsoft.

This manager was the whole reason for me(and around 6-8 other guys) to leave this fantastic company(in a span of 6-8 months).

Work

It was super hectic and challenging!

Microsoft definitely a very good org to work in. The work is good, there is lot of emphasis to self development, and the company also invests a lot in the development of the employee, however if you are really unlucky they you might get stuck with a manager who does not really understand the meaning or responsibilities of a manager.

Dislikes

Microsoft is over all an excellent org, however Microsoft India, well the management is very poor, the managers are of poor, old dated mentality carrying a huge ego along with. Not all managers are like that, however the majority ones i have seen really have no self respect.

Work

Very good exposure to new technologies through work. Getting to work with excellent professionals across the globe.

Part of MS GTSC-Bangalore (developer support).
Lots to learn about MS debugging tools and using them to solve/debug customer code. MS brand name gives a huge career boost, flexi timings, work from home. Overall a fun place to be

Dislikes

MS GTSC treats its employees as step children as compared to MS IDC, its is way too number driven (CX feedback is major deciding factor, so if u get a tough case to crack that took too long and CX is disappointed, that is your problem).

Work

Its exciting for 1st 2 years, once you know the tools, then its just process oriented. You can learn what ever u want including Linux/mac/android.

Microsoft is Good Company.
Environment, facilities are super.

Dislikes

I worked on behalf of Unisys vendor in Microsoft. This Unisys vendor company makes struggles to their employees.
Login Hours 10, you should be reach on time every day, should complete all your work day to day, every day targets, weekly perpormance reports monitored.
If any of the above is not functional then they will remove you suddenly without any notice. And Unisys vendor doesn't have any sentiment or sympathy toward s the employees.

Affluent Global Services will apparently remain as the best company that I worked for for years to come although my association with them was just six months. They are vendors to leading IT companies and they are Microsoft's gold partner.

Right from the way HR treat to compensation to formalities, everything is so transparent here. The CEO of the company is too good and so are the top and mid-level management people.

I strongly recommend this company to others.

Dislikes

Nothing that I dislike.

Work

I worked for their client Microsoft and it was pleasure working for them.

The scope of work was large. My role required me to reach out to senior personnel within & outside my Organization. I could learn the latest in technology.

Dislikes

Work was always hectic. Our team was understaffed & overworked 365 days of the year. My manager was not equipped to handle the team. He always skipped processes, which put tremendous pressure on the team.

The work culture is awesome in this place. The leadership team always takes care of the company's value and keep that in the top priority. I can proudly say that I work for Microsoft

Dislikes

I don't see any negativity as such in the organisation. However, due to some managers the company's reputation is at risk but at the same time the leadership team is approachable and take necessary action on the feedback.
