Amazing learning experience

Research Intern (Former Employee)
Redmond, WA

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

ProsFirst, the work atmosphere is motivating, providing a lot of opportunities to learn both the technical knowledge and how the industrial research works. Second, my boss was very helpful, providing a precise advice and guidance for the project I was working on. Finally, the most rewarding part was an opportunity to make a lasting influence, by working on a project that got shipped with the next version of Windows operating system.

ConsThe only downside I can think of is the nature of research that requires short term to mid-term benefits. For people who would prefer more fundamental, but riskier research plans Microsoft research might not be the best place to be. Although, that might not apply in general, but only for the unit I was involved in.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
