I worked at Microsoft full-timePros
People are really nice and open, and the seniors are willing to listen. Staff meetings are pretty casual. Free coffee, snacks and other drinks are provided in office. There's also gym in the building for employees to use, which is really cool. We also have a dining and a cafeteria in the company, and a variety of other restaurants around, so lunch was always exciting.Cons
Sometimes you might have to work overtime.You might also need to do some extra work for other teams when they need your help. But that's the only thing I can think about so far, and I guess this kind of stuff happened in a lot of companies. So really nothing special I can think of...RecommendsNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Microsoft.Interview Details
I initially had a on campus interview at my university. It was short 30 minute interview where they went over my resume and had a quick technical question.
I heard back around 3 weeks later, mainly b/c I had a offer that was on the verge of expiring. They flew me out to the Redmond campus that same week.
The day of the interview, I arrived on site around 8am and had a quick chat with HR. They told me which team I was interviewing for and sent me to the building for the interviews. I had 5 interviews and 1 lunch interview. This lasted until around 3PM.
I received a call the next day and was extended an offer.
