Hiring Private Events

I got an invite for a private hiring event for Microsoft. There is no specific role for which this event is conducted. Does MS really hire candidates in such events ? or is it some kind of marketing gimmick ? Seeing such events are other companies... —  read more

Microsoft layoffs coming 2019

If you are not aligned with Azure keep your eyes open. I have no insider info and this is all just my gut feeling but overall the shifts in the market and on the consumer/business side are tectonic. I feel there is a lot of layoffs coming in 2019... —  read more

Great company

Every July, regardless of performance, employees come to work on edge wondering if they’ll be part of the “reorganization.” What a neat place to work if you are supporting a family. Cannot believe the strategy of paying a headhunter fees, training... —  read more

L62 offer?

Is this out of whack - this is what I've got offered: L62, Base @ $140K, $12.5K RSU per year (50K for 4 years) and a 20K sign on bonus. I was expecting more but the recruiter seems to be fairly firm and is indicating that this is not negotiable. Do I... —  read more

Dynamics Layoffs Took Place This Week.

The axe fell on Monday. I do not have exact numbers and I've seen multiple posts claiming different numbers on Blind, so really cannot even nail an average (#s are all over the place). Anyhow, cuts were on 1/14 and I think they are done for now - I... —  read more

Somethings up in CSS

Not sure what this new re-organization is about but people are being moved around in CSS and also let go this week and very quietly. Everything is being handled in very bizarre way from the top down.

Regular releases instead of keeping people waiting

Ran into this article online, just cannot believe they finally decided to do this. They have been frustrating customers for years with long waiting periods, so I think Microsoft announcing this new way of placing releases on the market was a right... —  read more

Thoughts on Working at GitHub?

Thinking about applying to a job at GitHub, but they were acquired by Microsoft and I don't see a separate forum for Git. I know of some friends that would do the same in different areas. We don't know how Microsoft handles acquisitions (strip them... —  read more

Big Round Of Cuts Coming in 2019?

One big round must be coming with the departure of Terry from Windows and a final cull as the whole business goes into sustain engineering. How many Developers and Project Managers does it need to do patching and critical security etc? Azure is not a... —  read more

International Sales on the chopping block

This is in line with what transpired back in 2017 - as more sales is pushed online and as cloud offerings continue to cut into legacy channels - we'll see more and more sales folks leave the company. Most legacy companies have done the same (e.g.... —  read more

New RIF on our way?

I would imagine come July we will see a bunch of RIF going on as the feet on the ground are swapped out for new. WDG is fat with headcount that at this point has no purpose and makes no sense. Some will be sent on a death march toward cloud to see... —  read more

More WDG fun..

With the demise of the inbox win10 apps, and the shift to web frameworks and edge - I would be worried if I was working on the UWP / Xaml side of the world. So many conflicting frameworks - most devs would rather target xplat c# or html5 for iOS... —  read more
