The most enjoyable part of the job

Working with Microsoft, there's a new emphasis on teamwork and collaboration, rather than competition and glory grabbing. Microsoft values its employees. The culture also shifted in recent years from super individual competitor to making others successful and teamwork, which reduced the stress level at work to low,

great

great envoiurment My account was "temporarily" suspended as a result of a selfish jerk who had access to my account reporting it after I finally locked him out of it. I submitted multiple -- so many, oh so many -- requests to have it unsuspended, only. "... [w]e received your service request and after review, I found Two-Step Verification (TSV) has been enabled on the account. Unfortunately, when TSV is turned on, we are unable to assist with an account recovery as TSV takes the account recovery completely out of control of customer service... The only option we have is to permanently suspend this account to prevent any further use of the account. I have verified that the account is suspended and will remain so. Although this may not be the resolution you were expecting, unfortunately, it is the only resolution we can provide."
