Review from HR Dept

What did you like most about the interview process?

Interviews Reviews

Personal and no assessments, actually got to talk to my future manager

The focus was on culture, not capabilities.

Review from HR Dept

Getting to know the team and challenges ahead.

I ended up letting my guard down and speaking longer than I normally would in front of strangers, so it's reasonable to say I must have felt fairly comfortable.

Review from Design Dept

Knowledge of the people who performed the interview

Review from IT Dept

What would you improve about your company's interview process?

Interviews Reviews

Microsoft needs to drop its practice of discriminating in hiring based on demographic. At Microsoft each interview pool must contain a certian number of people based on demographic and hiring managers must justify why they arwnt hiring a "diverse" candidate,

MS likes to have interviews back to back (4-5) and does not let the interviewer know what they covering

Review from Sales Dept

It was slow and communication is poor. It's the worst thing about Microsoft and needs an overhaul.

Review from Product Dept

Be more aware of diverse backgrounds and the value they can bring. Some of the long time managers in Microsoft have poor awareness and they dont therefore know how to be inclusive of diverse backgrounds

Stop white-boarding in interviews if the candidate already has a track-record.

What makes you most happy at work?

Review from Design Dept

Everything, this mean benefits, leadership, teamwork, etc

Review from IT Dept

What's going wrong and how can it be improved?

Outlook Reviews

We are viewed as a Vendor. Not treated like partners and I guess there is enough of a stain left by previous leadership to warrant caution

Change is not possible because change is irrelevant. Any instance of so called changed would only be window dressing.

Review from Customer Support Dept

Too much to convey is the medium.

The company doesn't care about employees or customer satisfaction.

Review from Marketing Dept

Bad managers and no care about people
