    Love it; Microsoft culture is healthy and promotes growth.

    Explore Intern (Current Employee) Bellevue, WA

    ProsThey treat interns very well; it's what you make of the internship and managers are very helpful and willing to share.

    ConsYou have to fix your eyes on inspiring people because there are some interns who will pull you to slack off.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPerhaps treat interns more similarly to the full time employees so that we get a feel for what full time would be like

    Great environment for software engineers

    Program Manager Intern (Current Employee) Redmond, WA

    ProsThey give you tons of equipment that you'll ever want or need.
    Lots of smart people to be around all the time.
    You're own office.
    Free drinks whenever I want them.
    Great cafeteria food and they even tell you what's healthy and not.
    VERY VERY eco friendly environment.
    Encourage you to go out and meet other people on campus so they have happy hours where they serve free beer and food. They also encourage you to join sports on campus and you can go at any time during work hours to do whatever you want, may it be working out, volleyball, on a run, chat with people, get food, they don't care just have fun.
    The general thought is you can do whatever you want as long as your happy and you're getting your work done. You pretty much only HAVE to be in the office when you have meetings.
    Great benefits in and outside of the work place.

    ConsSince people are so free to do what they want its hard to deal with everyone schedules.
    There's a lot of smart but very arrogant and hard headed people - dealing with them can be very difficult and sometimes its hard to get what you want done.
    Lots of politics in the management.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
