This morning at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, the Boston Business Journal recognized Microsoft’s Boston office as one of Boston’s 2011 Best Places to Work. This year, we placed third on the list for Large Companies (we were #4 last year) and GM Craig Hodges graciously accepted the recognition. He also announced that Microsoft will donate $1000 on behalf of our 1000 employees to Habitat for Humanity, the non-profit highlighted by the event.

Microsoft is the #1 ranked technology company in its category, and this is the 5th straight year we’ve been honored as one of the “Best Places to Work.”

We’re so proud to continually rank on this prestigious list and appreciate all of our employees’ hard work, creativity and dedication to customers and community partners, which truly makes Microsoft a great place to work.
