I worked at Microsoft

Pros

Very friendly and talented folks; my manager was very resourceful and did not just give me a project that was swept under the rug.

Cons

I feel like I could be making a larger contribution if I worked at a smaller company or SV area startup.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Would be good to let incoming interns know ahead of time what they will be working on for the summer.

    I have been working at Microsoft

    Pros

    Diversified product lines which allow employees to explorer different part of the company.

    Cons

    It is getting too big as a tech company. Its disadvantage in moving slowly is painfully apparent when compared to younger competitor such as Google.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out the middle managements and flatten the org. Spin off if necessary. There are too much bureaucracies which hinder decisions and developement in a fast moving industry.
