A typical day at work involved reviewing data from sales team and a brainstorming session with the sales team.
Learnt- I learnt the importance of collaboration within a team

Management-Emotional intellegence is very important in the management of people.

The workplace culture encouraged collaboartion and innovation, which allowed us contribute ideas and provide crative solutions to everyday problems.

The hardest part of the job was execution and management of project risks.

The most enjoyable part was collaborating with colleagues to find lasting solutions to everyday problems.
Pros
Great free lunches
Cons
extra long hours

I liked that I could work remotely once in a while..
My manager was great.

Some other managers were not.

working in a small subsidiary or as a contractor isn't secure.

Being a Microsoft Student partner got me exposed to different Microsoft products and it gave me an avenue to learn,build and teach college students about Microsoft technologies and technology generally. It gave me opportunity to meet different developers across the world. Microsoft dream spark account made me have access to tools that I would not be bale to afford as a young developer.
Pros
Events

I enjoyed working at Microsoft Nigeria because of the diversity of cultures that join to form the company. my typical day at work was unpredictable and very challenging.

I found the staff really fun to work with because of different cultures cultures in the office. The only problem was that lunch was crazy because we had alot of staff asking for their own kinds of food, which we tried to accommodate as much as we can.

We had fun days like bring your child to school and dress down mondays, also every staff got a birthday cake on their birthday with a poem written by me of course.

Microsoft was indeed a wonderful place to work in.
Pros
Free Breakfast and Lunch, dress down mondays
Cons
healthcare system, unpaid overtime

I resume work 9am and settle down to check my itinerary for the day planning.

I have learnt a lot of values working for MSFT, I worked with the best team in the world which made me understand you can achieve a lot by been a good team mate.


I was a member of my local LT, every decision was subjected to criticism and aligned action points.


Again the best co-workers in the world.


The criticism can be extremely harsh but be rest assured it is never personal but business.


My colleagues, the meetings the strategy,
Pros
Free Lunches, New phone with every release
Cons
Leave & vacation always a tough negotiation

Waking up to work each day is fun. Faced with new challenges and the resources at your disposal to achieve success is the exciting part of my job. Collaboration with colleagues is very important as a team member. Hardest part is the ability to work with global colleagues across different time zones. Enjoying part of the job is the recognition you get when you achieve success and the incentives that comes with it
Pros
Free Lunch, Travels
Cons
Long hours of work when dealing with virtual global team
