  1. Great company, but I was in a hostile work environment so left a lot to be desired.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay, great people for the most part. Interesting work, fast paced and very diverse. Many perks, great campus and overall a good place to work.

    Cons

    Several people in leadership roles acted like children much of the time. Corporate VP was a loud mouth who had a permanent strain in his arm from patting himself on the back for work other did. GM in my group was so biased that I was amazed at her conduct. I'm glad I'm no longer there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring people that act like little kids during meetings.

    I have been working at Microsoft as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The company took good care of the interns, even the ones not in the Redmond location. Microsoft had a fun culture, interesting events, and an overall well organized intern program.

    Cons

    Microsoft is a large company that can be stuck in process and organization, that might slow down work progress and stifle creativity in favor of organized productivity.
