      Whatโ€™s going on with Minecraft in particular? I know several people that joined recently.

      How's azure identity and bing/cortana

      Azure identity is okay. Bing and Cortana belong to different orgs and are good, at least in Redmond.
      Given a chance go to Office.

      Not Really. I got the offer, and they asked me which team will I be interested in. I don't think they are letting me pick, but wanted to know which team are good for career growth.

    Office. Teams. Azure.

    Office is extremely stable, strong business, and excellent WLB. Azure is also a great place to be but more startup type culture. More stressful, probably will learn more, but almost certainly have less WLB. I'd definitely choose between these two orgs though.
