I worked at Microsoft as an intern for less than a year

Pros

The internship program at Microsoft is excellent. They seem to treat interns as full time employees in terms of work. They also have lots of pretty fun events over the course of the summer and you get a chance to meet a lot of other interns and network within the company. They also pay really well.

Cons

The project I was given could have been more interesting, but that seems to vary a lot between interns.

    Pros

    Flexible hours and friendly people.

    Cons

    Lots of work coming in at random times, so it can be a little hard to separate work from social life.

    I worked at Microsoft as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Always lots to do, can be as good as you make it.

    Cons

    Impressive inefficiencies, constant churn, powerpoint culture,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow processes and strategies to mature for at least a year before changing things, the constant churn is exhausting.
