    I worked at Microsoft as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great colleagues and a friendly environment with a good work life balance. Recognised and rewarded for your contribution to the company. Encouraged to develop new ideas.

    Cons

    A little bit 'corporate' in their processes and it can sometimes late longer too get things done, but changing.

    Very standard questions from HR, like give me an example of your team work. Give me an example when someone don't agree with you. For the presentation period, it gives two projects to choose and ask your decision and why.
