Thread regarding Microsoft Corp. layoffs

Diversity at Microsoft

Hi all,
would like to hear your honest opinion and advice. After several rounds of interviews, everyone that I've met at Microsoft, from engineers to VP, were Asian people. Is this a norm in the Microsoft Engineering? Can you tell me what should be my diversity expectation if I decide to join?

If you're in your 30s, or nearing 40, watch out. By age 45, you could be out. Microsoft is known to sp-t out employees that are over 45. They practice a hire now with 40ish to fire within five years just so they can continue to have over 40 stats. They heavily discriminate despite stating they are a DEI company. Ageism is a major issue, and a very small percentage if any, are employees over 50. Microsoft is not into longevity with their employees, and show no loyalty. Knowing this going in, you can have realistic expectations as to what you will get out of your time there.

Should expect to run into plenty of Asian leaders in the tech majors. Expecting otherwise is like wanting to play in the NFL without working for African leaders.

Redmond is known locally as "Little India" - there is a reason for that.
