I have been working at Microsoft as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

The company took good care of the interns, even the ones not in the Redmond location. Microsoft had a fun culture, interesting events, and an overall well organized intern program.

Cons

Microsoft is a large company that can be stuck in process and organization, that might slow down work progress and stifle creativity in favor of organized productivity.

    I have been working at Microsoft as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere with lots of friendly, talented co-workers. Most Type-As, but nobody was unprofessional. Everyone was willing to assist in my development, and they really cared about your future with the company.

    Cons

    It was a four-month internship so there wasn't too long to leave a bad taste in my mouth. It is difficult to get full-time within the organization, as it is in most places. Microsoft typically hired people with many years of industry experience, which made the entry doors rather barred for young.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire younger people.
