    Pretty much TC. Maybe lack of locations outside Redmond.

    Most of the old stigma about MS moving slow and having toxic ranking seems to have mostly dissipated

      What is "that type"? You think people become dull after 6 years or you don't appreciate someone else more senior than you in the team?

      the toxic competitive way to collaborate due to the toxic ranking system of Balmer's legacy. Whoever went through that system for many years to some extent have adapt themselves to the system. And why are you offended?

      sorry I was entirely referring to the toxic system. so many years has passed but the damage of the ranking system to teamwork remains even now.

      confirming Apple. I got hurt after joining as new grad, and moved to a different org. It’s much better.

    Apart from the reasons already listed, It's still a bloated company where things move slowly, especially in some orgs.

    Underestimating the learning opportunities. Less hype.

    No free food. Low tc. Lower bar to get in

    Microsoft is the place to go if you want to retire at a country club while still earning six figures, for the most part
