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

    Pros

    Great team, great working environment, very interesting project. Really felt like I got a taste of what it meant to work at Microsoft. 10/10 would return.

    Cons

    To be honest- not really any big cons. The only thing is that I wish they had free food, although that is stretching it.

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

    Pros

    Interns are treated incredibly well. The food and extra curricular activities were amazing. Fun campus. Fun problems I was solving in my team. Nice people. Lots of learning!!!

    I was able to stay late and even go in on a couple of weekends,. but it was by my choice. I really liked my project and being an intern.

    Cons

    Nothing that comes to mind. The only thing I would have wanted more of was more feedback on where I can improve.
