Microsoft OA result

Gave Microsoft OA last saturday. It was very easy IMO. I even submitted my code for all the questions on leetcode judge and it worked for all test cases on leetcode so I am sure I did all the questions correctly. Today I got a mail from my recruiter saying that I did not clear the OA. What could be the reason? This is for cosine hiring event on the 19th of July.

      Yes, obviously it will be medium/easy. Are you comfortable to mention which questions were asked?

    Op you got really lucky. Cosine is the number one worst org in Microsoft. Do your research. The reason they need a hiring event is because too many people left.

      They were former windows team with large legacy codebase. Old 80 technology, waterfall and finger pointing model. Constant layoff, super political, backstabbing, tight budget. You need to know someone to get promote or stay your level forever. Very unfriendly to junior dev and most talent leave in a year. Transfer internally is hard because of reputation. There was large exodus last year and this July. They need people to fill hole. Your pay will most likely be lowball and nothing comparable with growing Azure team even they merged with Azure. Poll score is below company average all the time and lead has no intention to fix. Stack ranking exist in a hidden form

      Oh. BTW I accepted their offer but it's for Linux System Group. Hopefully it will be better?

    Before I gave my online assessment recruiter briefed me that I should document everything, like my thought process while solving the question. Another point is for me one of the question was ambiguous, I noted that in a comment and made an assumption and went with that. So maybe they are looking for that as well?

      For me the questions were purely like right answer/wrong answer. They were questions directly copy pasted from leetcode. Thats why before submitting my OA i made sure to run my solution on leetcode. Plus I commented/documented everything. Really not sure as to what went wrong.

      Maybe you opened leetcode, switched browser tabs and they marked it as cheating? I don't know if that much tracking is possible though?

    I have heard of people getting rejected as their answers were too perfect to be true.

      Reminds me of a lab which I had to repeat because my results were very close to actual values. The Prof said that the instruments in lab have bigger MPE than my results.
