    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The ability to work on real, cool and important technology that is used by millions of people across the world. Intelligent, helpful and hard-working people. The changing industry landscape is spurring more innovation and new opportunities. The work culture is stable and welcoming, people are expected to have meaningful lives outside of work. :-)

    Cons

    Adapting to change isn't always easy (reorgs can be confusing to navigate), there's often an underlying tension about performance reviews, and we have quite a bit of room to grow when it comes to collaborating across organizations.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage divisions to collaborate to build great customer experiences, continue to encourage taking risks and trying new things. Keep up the great benefits! The new health center on campus is awesome.

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

    Pros

    + World class researchers + Friendly environment + Great projects + Lots of perks for the interns + Weather is great during the summer Great experience overall

    Cons

    Nothing in particular. 3 months may not be enough for a full fledged project, so it takes a lot of effort, but it is worth it
