    I worked at Microsoft as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Smart people all over the place. Highly used products.

    Cons

    The experience is hit or miss depending on what team you are placed on and what they have you work on. 12 weeks is not a lot of time to do anything too important. But it is enough time to determine if your team is a good match for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    MS has a lot of respect for their interns and new hires. It's a great company.

    I worked at Microsoft as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The people at Microsoft Research are fantastic, world-class researchers. My experience in the Cambridge research lab completely changed my graduate studies. I learned about a new field. I learned how to do engineering for that field. I made what I hope are lifelong friendships and collaborations. It was truly a fantastic experience.

    Cons

    The intern seating is ridiculously lacking. I cannot believe there are not more intern desks. Interns should be seated near peers who are working on similar problems and should be seated near their mentors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the research pure. Microsoft is one of the only companies remaining that is still invested in pure science that does not have to be applied to a product immediately. Don't let this die.

    I worked at Microsoft as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Interns are treated incredibly well. The food and extra curricular activities were amazing. Fun campus. Fun problems I was solving in my team. Nice people. Lots of learning!!!

    I was able to stay late and even go in on a couple of weekends,. but it was by my choice. I really liked my project and being an intern.

    Cons

    Nothing that comes to mind. The only thing I would have wanted more of was more feedback on where I can improve.
