    I have been working at Microsoft

    Pros

    An internship at Microsoft has been a great experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone. The pay and benefits for interns is better than most other internships. Above this, however, the way in which Microsoft structures their internships is very refreshing compared to past internships I've had. Intern projects at Microsoft are incredibly well thought out and are designed so that you can complete them during the summer, make an impact, and not have to learn every intricacy of the product you are working on.

    As for working for Microsoft in general, everyone seems to be very happy with their jobs and I have yet to see much that would make me want to work anywhere else.

    Cons

    Not really a negative, but I would say that your experience here, much like at other companies, is very much dependent on your group and the people you work with. There of course have been a few stories of interns who work for groups they simply don't like. For the most part, however, the groups are all very enthusiastic and fun to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was probably not at the company long enough to make a reasonable assessment of Senior Management at Microsoft. Although I can say that everyone I have had contact with that is in a management position above me has been nothing but enjoyable.

    Pros

    Amazing food, accommodation, culture, people !! The people here are amazing. You find a lot of young minds. They provide a lot of outings for the MACs and they even take you to the US!

    Cons

    Work may be a monotonous. The pay is not really great. They could provide more pay. Also, the projects vary from one place to another. So you need to be a little lucky to get good projects!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing really. They are doing great. Maybe increase the salary for the people in IT

    Give the entry software more challenges to help them grow.
