Microsoft sucks

Dec 5, 2019 31 Comments

This post is more of a rant :/

I worked at Amazon for couple of yrs before deciding to move to Microsoft. The only reason for me to do it was just change. I started my career at Amazon and never looked outside of it.

Now, been in Microsoft for over a month I have come to realisation of my horrible mistake. Microsoft feels ancient in every aspect. The developer tools sucks and I can't even look at windows.

On top of that, there's this culture bullshit. The amount of crap over D&I here is astounding. The more I think of it the more it makes sense that because their work sucks so they have these bullshit culture.

Amazonian have good work and innovating product. They don't have time to deal with this culture bullshit. Hence, such issues are comparatively less.

Moving on, I'm already in process with other companies to get the hell out of this place.

Amazonian don't join Microsoft.

      I don't care if a bank uses windows for its servers. They're old and so they prefer the outdated technologies as well.

      “It isn’t about technologies. It’s about how good you are at solving problems. What technology you use is irrelevant”

      Then msft devs are bad at solving the problem of making good tools for the world

      Except for the people making VS code and t sql. They are some saints.

  • I love these rants. People who are like three companies suck. I have been trying to get into them for 6 years. I will gladly take your job and happily work there so I can learn from other smart and expert people. ( Coming from a person who works at a mid west company where I'm the only software engineer and I have to push and develop my own tools and do everything from the ground up. ) But hey good luck!

      Read Maslow's hierarchy of needs. We're at different levels and hence different needs.

    • Interesting read. I'm sorry your needs are not being reached. But look on the bright side the lower tiers are hopefully being resolved. :)

    One month is too quick to pass judgement on a company. I've been there for some time as well. Azure is much better and stable than aws. Aws has been in market longer and has bigger contracts, but azure is catching up fast. Their IDE is top class for .Net development. Their culture is friendly and helpful. Not toxic. Your promotion is not based on 14 leadership principles but how much you contribute to success of others and how you allow others to contribute to yours. I loved it. Got promoted twice without even writing promo docs or begging my manager for it.

      You can switch teams. Not every team innovates or operates the same way. I've worked in azure as well. I don't remember us obsessing over aws.

      I will try to switch if I don't get outside offers. I hope it doesn't get that bad.

      I'm gay and believe it or not but i don't want to be in a company on basis of my sexuality. I go for merit than anything else.

      This whole D&I chapter is just to prevent corps from getting sued.

      Not just D&I but a career lesson that no profit making corporate cares about you unless they have some share in the pie. Hence, this whole D&I is a blanket to prevent them in case of fire like an employee reporting discrimination. Then, they can simply put the employee on the path of retaliation.

      Google did that to employees who participated in the walk out. So, does every other companies.
