Great 6-month Internship

Software Development Engineer Intern (Former Employee)
Paris (France)

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

ProsGreat atmosphere
Great learning environment
Great flexibility in terms of working hours
Great perks
Having Microsoft on his resume is truly a great advantage

ConsMicrosoft has tools and software to do pretty much everything. In the end, It can be annoying to use Microsoft products constantly (very little use of open source tools).

enjoyed my intern

Software Development Engineer Intern (Former Employee)
Hyderābād (India)

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

ProsVery Helpful and approachable seniors. Great work environment and work culture. Beautiful campus at Hyderabad with great cafeteria and all sorts of sports facilities in case you enjoy playing some. Regular team outings and lunches. Above all at Microsoft you work on products which have a huge impact.

ConsPays a little less than other competitive companies like Google, at least starting salary is less. Being a intern I don't know about career growth and increments.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Microsoft encourages you to work hard, party harder and learn as much as you can.

Intern (Former Employee)
Hyderābād (India)

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

ProsGreat learning resources- Microsoft has a great environment where you are encouraged to learn as much as you can about your field.
Knowledgeable and passionate co-workers who always bail you out. You get to learn a lot from your peers.
Garage- My personal favourite. You get to showcase your creativity and coding skills and earn prizes at the same time!
Community-MS encourages people to give back to the community, both time and financial aid. I have seen people helping each other out.
Work-life balance - Flexible working hours and work from home are an added bonus

Cons1) You get addicted to the free food, leisure time and the above pros. Coming back to college and adapting was very difficult.
2) You sometimes feel alienated when you realize that everyone can dance except you.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
