Apparently I didn’t make it to the Azure Identity team hiring event so the recruiter suggested me to apply to the universal store hiring event instead, how is that team?

    I have never found such an uncooperative team within MS. They don’t drop the ball because they never receive it. They always point to others to do what they should be doing. I avoid working with them at all cost.

    Still a valid door into Microsoft. Better than msit. Use it to get in then hop to another team though internal transfer.

    It has a pretty bad reputation within Microsoft. But you can join there and transfer to another team. Internal interviews are usually easier to clear.

    I was told by my ex manager to not go there. Crazy. I asked around to others and they said the same. But take it with a grain of salt. I have never been there

      OP
      Are there sub teams that are actually pretty good?

      I think it comes down to what you're interested in. There are some interesting projects. What I found was that the services were not built incredibly well, and people just don't seem to care. Store could have some awesome stuff, I think people are super complacent

    Some teams are good, some are terrible. Anything RedTiger is good, CFO supports that project.

    I have received an offer as well. Accept it or leave it? Considering it opens the gate for better opportunities.

      I did read his question. You should stay on a team a year before moving. 1 year in ust will kill your desire to even be a developer.

      I don't know about Intel fully but interviewed couple of people (contractors) and they sucked.. UST might be a good start. If it's pure msit then clear NO

      Decided to let go the offer.

    Would it be better to ask for another Team within WDG even if it means to go through the interview process again? Or join ust for now and transfer within few months?

      Join and transfer. Satya has lifted the earlier company policy putting time freeze on internal moves. Declining the offer will put doubt in other teams mind if you are serious about joining Microsoft. Eliminate that question by accepting the offer. Also internal transfers are easier on the hiring manager. Win/win.
