Working at Microsoft was a tremendous experience. I had tons of opportunities to grow my network and knowledge by working on there backend commerce service for commercial. So enterprise’s licenses of Azure, Skype and Office were all coming through us at some point. Even if I’ve been there for only 1 year and a half, there’s obviously things I liked and disliked and this post is all about it. But before I start, understand that this is about my own experience only.
This is my very first post ever. The whole thing started when I finished school and join Microsoft as a Software Engineer. My wife, dog and I left our hometown, region, country, family and friends for the Microsoft experience. And after 1 year and a half, I’m leaving. But why in the world would I leave this job you probably ask yourself? The pay check is obviously more than enough (we won’t lie to each other here right), the benefits are there no doubts, working for one of the top 5 biggest company of the industry is for some once in a lifetime dream, people were nice around me and so on.
