Former Employee - Research Intern in Redmond, WA (US)

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

Pros

Flexible working hour, free sodas, nice gym membership, parking well available, once a month a party with wine. For interns there was also a subsidized car rental -- a good thing to take to see around, even though not a necessity for commuting as the company accommodation is just across the road.

Cons

working in offices with very thin walls, if someone on the other side is having a lot of phone calls, it may get a bit disturbing. No free food as google has, having at least some fruit available through day would be nice...

    Pros

    40 hr week, it's ok if you group does not make money because OS and Office products pay will pay for your group.

    Cons

    Growth is limited for IC.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Chance to work on latest tech if you are lucky.
    Lots of parties
    Good for very senior people on architect like position.

    Cons

    Full of mean managers and immoral things, no ethics
    "Only thing we know is Billing of resources"
    1500 hrs billing is only thing matters, if not, get low rating and next
    year, get fired!".
    Developers may go in testing !
    Growth depends on visibility not talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop focusing on Utilization.
    Respect talent
