Always heard work-life balance over there is great. I have a loose goal of ending up there some day. Not my main focus but I’ll shoot my shot one day

I've heard mixed reports of the workload at MS. Some say it is fairly intense and others saying it is not. At any large company there is a lot of variability between different projects and teams.

I worked at one company that had several Glassdoor reviews complaining about the lack of W/L balance, I'd been there several years and had never worked more than 40 hours in a week.

Have you gotten an offer?

The interviews mostly went "didn't you get the job, I highly recommend you? I'll just put you down as a 10". After those were done they told me I was UNDER qualified. Can't win!

One thing I keep having to remind myself is that career mobility is higher than ever. Have gotten several offers at this point from companies that I "kind of like", and have been holding out for the dream companies. But I should probably just take a solid offer elsewhere. It would give me a foundation to build up skills and experience, and continuously applying for jobs while having a solid job is probably a lot less stressful than needing the perfect job before I graduate my MS degree in 2 mo.
