I worked at Microsoft as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Great perks. Very warm atmosphere. Very nice campus. Extremely nice food for discounted prices. Intern events and special bonuses. Make no mistake, you will work hard, but you will play even harder.

Cons

Seattle weather. Historically it's mostly sunny from July 4th on until September or so. If you like the gloom and dark by all means, come in early spring, fall or over the winter.

Advice to Management

Perfect job. Keep it up!

    I worked at Microsoft as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay, great gifts (Samsung series 9 ultra book), exciting and real work, individual office!, intern speaker series with Steve Ballmer and VPs, amazing events with private concerts (Young the Giant, Alabama Shakes), the list goes on. This was by far the best internship experience I've had. I felt that I made a difference and learned plenty along the way. Even if you don't see yourself going to Microsoft full time, this is still an amazing internship opportunity!

    Cons

    About 1500 interns so you can't meet everyone. Redmond is boring, but it's only a 25 minute drive to Seattle in no traffic.

    Advice to Management

    Great job with the intern program.
