Bellevue and Redmond
Bellevue and Redmond are located on the east side of Lake Washington, across from Seattle. We live in Bellevue and Microsoft's main campus is in Redmond.
We like Bellevue a lot. It's a decent size city and in my opinion it's nicer to live in than Seattle. Plus the commute to Microsoft from Seattle is terrible, which is why most people prefer to live on the eastside.
Microsoft's main campus in Redmond is enormous. The main campus currently employs 35,000 full time employees and a small army of contractors and vendors. There are satellite campuses like in Bellevue that are worth visiting just because they have the top floors of several high rise buildings and the views are great.
