A culture of wellness and balance

  • Benefits play an important role in your choice of an employer. That's why we work hard to make sure our benefits reflect the changing needs and wants of our people, and it's why we provide many industry-leading benefits to our employees who rely on them. Our goal is to empower you with the resources, incentives, and flexibility you need to enjoy success on the job and to live a healthy, balanced life. Microsoft is widely recognized as a leading company for offering one of the strongest and most comprehensive compensation and benefits packages in the country. We start with competitive pay and then we add on unique offerings that might surprise you. Here's a bird's-eye view.
