To answer the original question ;) -- Yes.

I have known people who have applied for positions at Microsoft, and I know
folks who work at Microsoft (as we all probably do :) The interviewing/hiring
process is rigorous and all the people I know who work there are top notch.
The ones I've met are dedicated (most work long hours) but remain upbeat
and enthusiastic. All the qualities one wants in a potential employee (smart,
hardworking, and nice to be around).

This is my experience -- as always, YMMV.

to say nice things about them or their employees ;)
