    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Microsoft as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people and therefore a good atmosphere and office dynamic.
    Always something new to learn and new challenges to conquer.

    Cons

    Whilst interns, MACHs and apprentices get great support and encouragement, many employees are completely overlooked.
    Contractors are often looked down on by FTE employees, even though some roles can be available to both employment types.
    The company is an old boys club - progression is down to who you know, not capabilities, which means great employees get overlooked


  2. "Good work place"
