I have been working at Microsoft

Pros

The internship program is obviously designed to fix any problems before they occur. I had very clear project expectations, lots of positive feedback, great working conditions, and excellent compensation.

Cons

The only major downside was the fact my project had trouble finding programmers to actually implement the planned feature, but my manager compensated very well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's hard to think of any way to improve - my overall experience was amazing. I guess the major problem is trying to coordinate so many projects in so many discrete departments.

    Pros

    Good people to work with
    Managers who tried to help my career (not always skilled at doing so)
    Good work life balance
    a chance to work on products that many people will use

    Cons

    very Redmond centric, I was at a small office and we were less important
    too much overhead, too few developers managed by too many
    you have to sell yourself and your accomplishments to get ahead

    Pros

    Scope and impact of work

    Good pay
    Career growth

    Cons

    Some of the managers are incompetent. But have seen them eased out to non-management roles.
    Not the highest paymaster - there are other companies in the Seattle area that pay higher
