Equal pay

At Microsoft, we are committed to the principle of equal pay for equal work for our employees and have taken care to ensure employees are paid equitably for substantially similar work. That means employees working within the same geographic area, who have similar scope based on their overall job content, will have similar opportunities for pay each year. We monitor our internal pay data to make sure this principle is reflected in our compensation programs, policies, and practices.

Our different experiences connect us

We engage and connect to communities inside and outside Microsoft through several opportunities in partnership with our eight Employee Resource Groups and 40+ Employee Networks.
