India Benefits

Microsoft employees taking advantage of our benefits

A culture of wellbeing and balance

Benefits play an important role in your choice of an employer. That’s why we work hard to make sure our benefits reflect the changing needs and wants of our people, and it’s why we provide many industry-leading benefits to our employees who rely on them. Our goal is to empower you with the resources, incentives, and flexibility you need to enjoy success on the job and to live a healthy, balanced life.

Microsoft is widely recognized as a leading company for offering one of the strongest and most comprehensive compensation and benefits packages in the country. We start with competitive pay, bonuses, and stock awards to eligible employees based on individual performance. Then we add on unique offerings that might surprise you.

Flexible Benefits in India.  At Microsoft India we understand that each employee has unique benefit needs and to meet that we offer flexible benefits. Flexible benefits puts the control in your hands to choose the mix of benefits that best suit you and your family. We make the benefits fit you instead of just offering a standard set of benefits. Here’s a bird’s-eye view.
