Pathetic recruiting experience at Microsoft

I interviewed for SDE 2 equivalent at Redmond, Microsoft. 5 rounds of technical interviews. All of them went pretty well.

Recruiter communication was poor from the start of the process. But I chose to ignore that since the interviews went smoothly.

2 weeks later recruiter calls and says a team is willing to make an offer.

Was connected to 2 teams - Bing and Azure. Both hiring managers said the interview feedback was good. We are just looking to match you with the right team.

About 3 days later, when I contacted the recruiter, I was told they have not found a good match and are not ready to make an offer. Is this normal?

Since interviews went well and I got confirmation from 2 managers about it, would any other team be open to recruit based on this interview feedback? If so, how should I go about this?

    New hires of MSFT matches Google in most cases. I doubt Amazon pays more than Google

      without higher competing offers, these three pay about same TC to college hire.
