Microsoft FRP Analyst Salary?

My friend working in the Microsoft FRP Analyst program said she got paid $88K base, $8.5K stock, $7K stipend, $4K cash bonus = $107.5K~ for first year salary for working 35-40 hours. She also mentioned that FRP Analysts at Microsoft are classified as "Senior Financial Analysts" from day 1, but there are only 30~ members in the FRP program. Then after completing 4 6-month rotations all the analysts get upgraded to Finance Managers and start making 115k base salary. Any former/current Microsoft FRP Analysts can confirm if this timeline/salary structure is true?

It sounds absurd to pay a first year analyst this much, considering their unpolished skills and limited work hours..

Your friend isn't lying. Aside from the money, this is a great program with amazing placement internally and externally. Do a LinkedIn search to see for yourself.

Any idea why Microsoft is paying so much for first year analysts? I'm assuming only FRPs with loaded resumes are selected or Microsoft is just experimenting with talent development?

They want the best people and are willing to pay for it. This finance program has been around for a long time and has always paid a premium compared to similar programs.
