Relaxing, good team and enjoyable time. Good Supervisors, this opportunity opened a way towards my retail experience in the country. Growing rapidly in IT just because of this part time experience.

It was good work experience. I was able to extend my IT skills into actual applications in tasks of making a bot. I really enjoyed being mentored by the staff members and working with other students. A particular stand out from the work-experience to me was designing a brochure for Microsoft since it allowed me to demonstrate my creative ideas with the team and staff.
Outside of phone calls, numerous emails and stakeholder contacts, I address and escalate issues daily and chase for resolution. Identify breaks or gaps in processes and escalating to higher management, raising a business case for permanent fix, Im not a fan of band aids.I work closely with our sales team, identifying and resolving issues with partners/customers.Hardest part of the role is the frustration with getting staff to understand customer/partner issues and applying asense of urgency. Im a firm believer in cusrtomer is always right and we only have a job because of the customer so we must look after them and empathise.The culture is quite good, management don't micro manage and they have a flexible work policy, and have no issue with working from home.The most enjoyable part of the day is having a fix applied, happy Partners/customer, a sense of having made a difference.
Flexible work policy, free drinks and fruit
as a contractor not alwatys seen as an equal to FTE staff
Fast paced environment with plenty of variety to keep a person interested and energized to deliver on their objectives each day. Working toward shifting workplace culture to maximize effectiveness and address concerns about worklife balance.
They did a great job providing their employees with the tools to succeed, maintained work/life balance (though that is more up to the employee than anything), but the leadership is always, and always will be, infighting. Too much internal competition and history made large changes for the greater good impossible.
Great company to work for, many opportunities and smart passionate people around. Great learning environment. The culture is awesome, and people are generally helpful, and want you to be successful.

None, that I can think of.
Microsoft is a decent place to work, though the routines and processes are repetitive, and there is little opportunity for advancement if you are in a field sales role. MSFT needs to improve its sales game, and focus more on the customer.
I'd still be in this job if the management wasn't two-faced. Very easy to pick up and relaxing job to have if also studying. Management issues include not being paid for a month, constant changing and false promises plus lack of support or security.
great co-workers, independence, relaxed KPIS
management, constant changes, favouritism
Typical day: 8 hours, 3 breaks, a lot of work to be done. Learned: many things. Management: brilliant and supportive, love you Jose M. Workplace culture: professional and friendly, nice people to work with. Hardest part of the job: keep up with no-stop work. Most enjoyable: achieving great results.
nice offices, good people, a pleasure to work hard for them
It was a dream come true. Being a part of a great project. The training imparted to me was par excellence. The colleagues were very cooperative. I learnt to deliver high quality work in an extremely challenging and competitive environment while respecting the strict deadlines.
Challenging Atmosphere, Great training
Love the culture and the people however find it difficult with the policy of having EA's as contractors with no benefits. This unfortunately causes an obvious backlash which is sad as EA's are people who take pride in their roles.
Good work/life balance
contractor role with no benefits
