At Microsoft, we're motivated and inspired every day by how our customers use our software to find creative solutions to business problems, develop breakthrough ideas, and stay connected to what's most important to them. We run our business in much the same way, and believe our product segments offer the greatest potential to serve our customers. We are committed long term to the mission of helping our customers realize their full potential. Just as we constantly update and improve our products, we want to continually evolve our company to be in the best position to accelerate new technologies as they emerge and to better serve our customers.
We believe there are several key ingredients that make Microsoft the employer of choice in Massachusetts: industry leading benefits; dynamic and open culture that is fueled by employees; expansive career development opportunities and our employees' strong connections to the local community.
“I have an enormous opportunity to make an impact, the resources to make it happen, and the autonomy to do it the way I think is best.”
“I have the privilege with working with some of the brightest minds in technology every day. And the support I receive from both peers and management is beyond anything I've experienced in my career. ”
“Great company - people, products, technology, culture, benefits, training, etc.”
“The feeling that quality is more important than speed - we may not be first to market, but we are the best.”
“The senior managers really have the business acumen and expertise to move our company forward. They genuinely care about the growth and development of employees and are leaders. ”
“Thinking about how people will be using technology 2-10 years in the future. Thinking about what people will want to do rather than what new features we can give them.”
