Today, Dec. 7, Microsoft was awarded second place in the top-ranked large businesses category in Crain’s New York Business’ annual “Best Places to Work” issue. As part of the recognition, reporter Kira Bindrim interviewed Microsoft’s New York Metro General Manager Laura Wallace about the culture and benefits of working at Microsoft that resulted in a short article and inclusion in the publication’s online video coverage.
