Premier Field Engineering (PFE) provides technical leadership for Microsoft’s Premier customers around the world to promote health in their IT environments through onsite, remote and dedicated support services.
Okay, so what does all that really mean? If I’m a PFE, what will I be doing?
Cindy Parrish, one of Microsoft’s Recruiters has been talking to our PFE’s to get their personal stories. For the next several weeks we will answer that question, so that you have a clear picture of the PFE role at Microsoft.
Welcome to Wednesday and an explanation of what it’s like to be a PFE by a current PFE in their own words.
Here’s what Darol has to say about his job:
Do you like the adrenaline rush of a good competition? From having to outsmart a difficult competitor who won’t back down? From achieving victory through hard work, persistence and team effort? Me too! No, I’m not talking about competing in athletic events, though that is lots of fun as well. I’m talking about the camaraderie, problem solving, and opportunities to score big wins that benefit your team and customers through working in the PFE organization.
Problem solving: If you like to fix things, apply good thinking skills to complex problems, and do it with some of the most technically advanced tools, then PFE would be great for you.
Camaraderie: If you like to benefit others by providing help to them in an atmosphere of teamwork, as well as receiving the blessing of others contributing to your success as well, then PFE would be great for you.
Benefit customers: There is such a great feeling of accomplishment when you contribute to the success of one of your customers, such as when you become a trusted advisor in assisting with critical decisions that help to resolve complex problems that have hindered their company’s productivity. If you derive benefit from such work, then PFE would be great for you.
Work Life Balance: Oh yes, I really do like real-life competition as well. So if you enjoy spending time in athletic competition outside of work, as well as pouring yourself into your family and outside hobbies and ministries, then PFE can allow for that as well.
