    I worked at Microsoft full-time

    Pros

    Flexible Work environment. Amazing CEO and Company Mission. Always strives to do the right thing.

    Cons

    Layers of management looking out for themselves - typical of larger organisaitons. Too much difference between Corp Head Office and the field. The field lives on crumbs as its all about the P+L. Corp seems to have unlimited funding.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Auckland, Auckland) in April 2013.

    Interview

    One phone interview - ask about previous projects and language skills. Also asks one puzzle question and one testing question and few behavioural questions. If you pass this, then you get go for a full day interview in Australia.
