Why is it my dream company?
Dream company for me is not by the brand name but by the way one is professionally and personally
satisfied while working in that company. Any company will survive in the market only if the customer sees
value in service. Microsoft is one such company which has always delivered its best services. It was the time
when Microsoft released its Windows Xp. Wherever we go everyone speaks about Microsoft. That was the
time when I decided that I should work in Microsoft.
It is a market and customer driven company. Microsoft has put its constant efforts to change the
product or service that people may not have asked for. Thanks to Microsoft for wonderful products and
services. They have one of the highest market shares and profit shares, as they make steady gains in mind
share and heart share. A complete customer-orientation strategy. Apart from that many of my friends said,
the attitude of management towards their employees is the key factor there and it is the only company that
gives prime importance to its employees who they think are the main people because of which the company
is where it is today. So I felt that was the best company to work for.
Microsoft is one of the wealthiest and most successful companies in the world. Even more important,
from a human resource perspective, is the fact that Microsoft is an employee-driven organization. While
other organizations base their success on better manufacturing techniques, or better technology, Microsoft's
success is based on the effectiveness of their employees. This document will focus on Microsoft's HR
Department employee skills in each level.
