"The culture is amazing. There's collaborative work and a focus on delivering customer value as well as using IT to better everyone's lives. People are friendly and willing to help. There are corporate off-sites and conferences and, when attending them, there is always a lot of socialising. Because we are based in Reading and have a massive campus, there are many opportunities for people to meet after work."
Graduate, Reading
"The culture is incredible both inside and outside of work. One of the best things about working here is the people who club together to support one another, meet targets and socialise. There are no hierarchical barriers and everyone is treated as an equal."
Graduate, Reading
"Microsoft demonstrates and advocates diversity and inclusion. The culture of collaboration rather than individual achievement is what differentiates the company."
Graduate, Reading
"Everyone is always more than happy to spend time with you if you have any questions or want to understand what they do within the organisation."
Graduate, Reading
"The culture within the organisation is one of collaborative growth. People have a genuine interest in helping each other succeed as it's mutually beneficial."
Graduate, Reading
"There are lots of social events and older grads always try to get the younger grads involved. There are also lots of company-organised events to help us to create bonds."
Graduate, Reading
"I've never worked for a company where everyone is so enthusiastic and passionate about their jobs. It makes the people friendly both in and outside of work."
Graduate, Reading
"I think the culture is amazing. Everyone supports you and offers to help in any way they can. People are really social, friendly and easy to get along with. My team, in particular, has a rather flat hierarchy, which is great. Everyone has an open door and I can easily set up a coffee meeting with the head of our department, even if it's just for a quick chat/catch-up."
Midlevel, Reading


"Very satisfied, promotion of the importance of maintaining a good work/life balance."
