I got offer from multiple companies and finally decided to go with Microsoft. I signed and shared all the papers and my joining joining date is 16th Aug. This offer is comparatively lesser than all other offers, I still considered this one due to brand value. I have 10 YOE and working in Azure Data Engineering. Just got 56% increase in fixed pay whereas others are offering 100%. Even now Cognizant is willing to give more than 100%. Just wanted to hear from you guys on this.

Microsoft is the good choice 👌

If it is a choice between Microsoft and an IT services player like Cognizant, I would suggest go for Microsoft. In the long term, you would have a much more fulfilling career and growth prospects in a company like Microsoft. It would be a life changing event. So I would suggest think long term and go for Microsoft.

56 vs 100 is significant number to the ignore

Brand value will not pay your bills or increase your bank balance.

Any advice for asking to work from home?
I started my job just over a month ago and the one day a week I work from home I absolutely love. I have an hour commute to the office all other days and I'd love to even just get one more day at home. My manager is not aware of my adhd and I have crippling fear and shame around it so I'd rather not tell him. The office environment I'm in is honestly any neuroduvergent's nightmare. I know it's probably wrong to not tell him but I don't want any judgement.

If I found a house on the market, sent it to my realtor and asked if we can go see this property, he responded said it would probably be tomorrow, seller says it probably won’t pass inspections for financing so I say okay forget it because I think this realtor won’t be any value add since this is an investment property. He does go off and lists things that need work. Will he have probably cause to collect a commission if I go directly to seller with an offer?
