Hu Mann says:

My cousin works at Microsoft as a SE and he loves it. I know it's cool to hate on Microsoft sometimes but they do seem like a fantastic company to work for. At any Microsoft tech conference I attend, the MS employees always seem genuinely happy there.

All major hi tech firms talk a lot with each other.
It's you (all) against the world!

aja23 says:

What Microsoft lacks is stock refreshers. It's hard to justify staying at the company after your sign on stock package is fully vested.

Ryan Gulati says:

Hey Clement, any chance you're working on a front end expert? I know you said companies like FB are ok with people interviewing on the generalist SWE track but I feel like there are a lot of companies that would still prefer you to have team interviews or go through the front end loop

Mihir Adarsh says:

Hossain Ibna Ehsan says:

Coding Jesus says:

This whole FAANG thing is getting boring Clement. The world isn't only made up of FAANG. And don't fool yourself, Microsoft is just as big as FAANG, and should be part of the acronym.
