Current Employee - Software Development Engineer Intern in Mountain View, CA (US)

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.

    Current Employee - Principal Program Manager Lead in Redmond, WA (US)
    Current Employee - Principal Program Manager Lead in Redmond, WA (US)

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The ability to work on real, cool and important technology that is used by millions of people across the world. Intelligent, helpful and hard-working people. The changing industry landscape is spurring more innovation and new opportunities. The work culture is stable and welcoming, people are expected to have meaningful lives outside of work. :-)

    Cons

    Adapting to change isn't always easy (reorgs can be confusing to navigate), there's often an underlying tension about performance reviews, and we have quite a bit of room to grow when it comes to collaborating across organizations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to encourage divisions to collaborate to build great customer experiences, continue to encourage taking risks and trying new things. Keep up the great benefits! The new health center on campus is awesome.
