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

Pros

Microsoft Research has many brilliant researchers, great technologies and innovative ideas; you can learn a lot. The culture here is also great, people are willing to help each other and share their thoughts.

Cons

Microsoft is too large; hence a lot of time is spent on communication between groups. And since too many smart researchers are here, it would be little harder to get promoted.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I have a nice mentor when I worked in Microsoft Research Asia. The nicest part is that I have a lot of freedom to work on what I am interested in, not his requirement.

    Cons

    MS Research Asia only has strong groups in some area, but not my area.
