What’s it like to work at Microsoft?

I’ve often thought about applying for a job at Microsoft (and actually went along to a recruitment evening last year) but have held back for a variety of reasons (one of which is that if I didn’t get the job, I’d be gutted).

Anyway, I found a blog post, written by a Microsoftie in Redmond, in which he attempts to dispel some of the myths about working at Microsoft – no great revelations but an interesting read nevertheless.

Sadly, we don’t have free soft drinks where I work, so I can’t go cold turkey on the Diet Coke to save up for a tablet PC!

In the meantime, Ken’s follow-up article on how not to get hired at Microsoft is a sobering reminder that if I do submit my CV, I may well end up disappointed.
