A Day In The Life Of A Software Engineer At Microsoft | Expectation vs Reality

What people think I do vs what I really do. A funny, light-hearted take at a day in the life of a software engineer at Microsoft, quarantine edition. One of the best things about working at Microsoft is the flexibility around work. It is possible, and often encouraged to fix your lifestyle around work, which makes is very easy to alternate slots on your schedule between work and other chores you have to do. And since the company can operate 100% remotely for engineering, quarantine hasn’t impacted our direct job function. Of course, being able to interact with colleagues physically instead of virtually is always great, but remote tech has made things a lot easier.

Hope you enjoy 🙂
