Can anyone in Azure give me some information about Azure Compute org? I am expecting an offer from one of the teams that works on something related to virtualization.

I am curious to hear about WLB, managers, team members, projects, etc. Any advice is appreciated.

    Personally I thought compute was a little inflated with one too many β€œbros”. So I joined networking instead. They seemed to have more competent leaders.

      Not exactly sure what you mean... there are too many "bros" in management?

      I’m not really sure either. Was just the feeling I got.

    It's a big org so it depends more on the partner level.

      Level below CVP, who runs Azure compute.

      I see, so you mean the partner level manager dictates the atmosphere of the team/org I am in. I guess it will be difficult to tell from outside then.

      Yes I think the virtualization stuff is pretty interesting at least and well run. WLB in parts of the org are reasonable but many teams that own services have lots of on call. Compute offers a really huge variety of things work on including Autopilot, CRP, Service Fabric, and AKS so if you don't like your team you can switch.

      Nice, the team I am talking to is related to virtualization. I enjoyed talking to the manager and the manager's manager, so that's good.

      Now I am just hoping their compensation will be competitive to my other offers...

      They tend to give low ball offers unless you have a good competing offer. With a good competing offer its decent.
