      Not at all, just personally curious haha. This is all paper pushing so timing doesn't matter at all.

    Basically msft pay is about half of industry standard, and the hiring managers can't do anything to fix it. So outside you will get 350k - 400k but msft you will get 200-250k max.

      That means 63. Otherwise you would have been told

    What level 63 or 64? At 63 you can coast and get 18-20% bonus. At 64, you have to move a mountain.

      Typical leetcode, mostly medium plus a design round, I guess it's varies per group

      It depends a lot. Base will be pretty standard, but sign on stock can double. The problem is whether they think they need to double it.

    Azure depends a lot on the team. It may be fine or it can be a real dumpster fire were everyone who could just left
