Pros

The internship program is obviously designed to fix any problems before they occur. I had very clear project expectations, lots of positive feedback, great working conditions, and excellent compensation.

Cons

The only major downside was the fact my project had trouble finding programmers to actually implement the planned feature, but my manager compensated very well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's hard to think of any way to improve - my overall experience was amazing. I guess the major problem is trying to coordinate so many projects in so many discrete departments.

    I have been working at Microsoft

    Pros

    Work with lots of smart people. Work on products that are visible to millions of people. Great brand recognition, which is good for your career as a whole. Great benefits and a flexible work environment.

    Cons

    The company is huge, and inevitably this makes it slower than smaller companies. Despite best efforts to remove unnecessary process, there's still a lot of necessary process that comes with writing software that ships to millions of customers, which reduces perceived agility within the engineering team. Vertical career advancement opportunities are slow to develop.
