The Microsoft campus is located in West Midtown in Atlantic Yards, in one of the two-towered buildings in Atlantic Station, a community of retail shops, restaurants, theaters, offices, hotels, and homes. It's a short 15-minute drive from the Georgia Tech campus and easily accessible to I-85 and I-75.
The colorful Microsoft sign is prominently displayed outside the multi-storied brick building as you walk toward their office. The lobby offers comfy couches and chairs, a coffee bar, and a reception area where guests sign in.
One floor offers visitors the opportunity to see "The Garage Atlanta," an ample open space with floor-to-ceiling windows and chic concrete floors. It's a special place within Microsoft where innovation and creativity are unleashed to inspire interaction and learning. Here, employees gather for casual conversations or inspirational talks with special guests. It also houses a maker space where employees can work on fabrication and prototyping equipment.
Another office area caters to their other company, LinkedIn, which Microsoft purchased in 2016. LinkedIn is the largest online network for connecting with other professionals, sharing ideas and opportunities, and online learning through their LinkedIn Learning courseware.
