    Former Employee - Software Development Engineer In Test (SDET)

    I worked at Microsoft as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Fair amount of bright people, updated on some company events, friendly place to work, company events are great to boost morale, you get your own space (for those who like it), lots of products and services to work on, good as a entry place although I don't have enough experience with senior-level experience. Stable company!

    Cons

    People are generally friendly but might not go out of their way to get to know you, doesn't have the entrepreneurial feel in some groups, some groups are not as tightly knit with each other so you don't have the team feel, don't necessarily get the sense of contribution to the overall product when team isn't one of the best products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it easier to change teams, at least within certain divisions. Showcase more innovation.
