ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Microsoft encourages you to work hard, party harder and learn as much as you can.

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

Pros

Great learning resources- Microsoft has a great environment where you are encouraged to learn as much as you can about your field.
Knowledgeable and passionate co-workers who always bail you out. You get to learn a lot from your peers.
Garage- My personal favourite. You get to showcase your creativity and coding skills and earn prizes at the same time!
Community-MS encourages people to give back to the community, both time and financial aid. I have seen people helping each other out.
Work-life balance - Flexible working hours and work from home are an added bonus

Cons

1) You get addicted to the free food, leisure time and the above pros. Coming back to college and adapting was very difficult.
2) You sometimes feel alienated when you realize that everyone can dance except you.
