    I worked at Microsoft full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Researchers here work much like they would in academia on self-directed projects.
    Colleagues are smart and able to offer insightful feedback.
    The facilities are lovely and well-appointed.
    Pay is generous; vacation time and benefits are more than adequate.

    Cons

    There are very few cons to working at MSR.
    I worked as a doctoral intern and I was disappointed that there were not more opportunities to be hired full-time upon finishing my degree.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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