Hii Guys, Really if I talked days and days it's not enough to give them what they deserve, this is a company which any one could make anything whatever it is to help make it better, and this is a company I LOVE SO MUCH. That's why you won't found any Microsoft Employee who doesn't love Microsoft as much as you could ever imagine :)
This is a post which came into my mind to post it while I was talking to my friend when we were discussing his post about his company, but for the first time in my blog, I don’t advice anyone who’s not happy with his current job to read it, as probably it will not help him except by making him either curse me or hate himself more.
Any way, what’s this post all about?
It’s about Microsoft, although I’ve post a previous post on Microsoft before, but all the information inside it was available on the web on their site, in other words there’s nothing I’ve tried by myself when I posted it.
This post will talk about my experience here in Microsoft after 3 weeks; also it will contain all the information needed to finish the “The Journey to USA” episodes.
Now in addition for what I’ve mentioned in my previous post (which by the way is the exact things that I found here), let’s talk about Microsoft from my personal point of view, first before jumping into details, I just need to mention something:
This is a company which anyone could make anything whatever its cost to make it better, I could think about it as my second home now and the place I could do anything in-order to help it be the best.
Why I said this?!
Again before jumping into the details, I could summarize how Microsoft is treating its own employee in only one paragraph and then discuss the points I’ve met till now.
In short, imagine some guy and his wife whom are being married for more than 15 years and they did everything in-order to get a baby but in vain, and suddenly the miracle happened and they god a child, now if you could imagine how they will treat him, then you’ve got an initial idea of how Microsoft is treating us.
Before you continue reading these points, please read this previous post at first.
Now let's take it point by point:
No, I don't mean getting started in paper work (like SSN or Driving license or such things), nor renting/buying a home or car, no, I don't talk about such things, I talk about getting started on MS itself, know about MS culture, know more people, know about optional training and meetings, things like that, this team will be connected to every new employee for about 6 months till he/she started well with MS, not only this, also another team for new graduates like me, which will stay with us for about one year, making us get started on places here, holding events, making a good network between every new graduate, etc.
This guy whom I went to his office was Paul Flessner, Senior Vice President, Server Applications, a guy with a very very big position in Microsoft, and he didn't make me feel that he's that big at all, he was dealing with me in a very friendly way, and I didn't notice about his position until I talked to people here about what happened.
Even if I don't like it (although it's not true), I can't say this, because of the really amazing way he's dealing with me.
Also when he gives me anything to do, it's done in a very rare kind of friendly behaviors, even if he wanna give me a new task and found me talking with someone in non-job related stuff, or doing something, he just leave and come back when I finish!!!!
In Egypt it's is the same with only one different, this is done from any Employee toward his manager, not the inverse case like here.
Managers (and big manager), not only from my team, but from all other teams, passing by a new hire office and asking him if he needs anything?!!!
It's really amazing!!!
Also have access to a very big lap which contains multi-million dollars machines.
They really trusting employees here to be a part from the company, as they are not just employees, no, they are treating us as we're the company and we're the company's assets.
Nooooooooo, also if your additional degree is related to your job my any mean, they pay about 60% from your expenses in this degree, can you imagine this?!!!
Can you tell me the name of any other company which is doing all these?!!!
Really if I talked days and days it's not enough to give them what they deserve, this is a company which any one could make anything whatever it is to help make it better, and this is a company I LOVE SO MUCH.
That's why you won't found any Microsoft Employee who doesn't love Microsoft as much as you could ever imagine :)
