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

Pros

Lots of intern activities. Great work environments. Free sodas and Starbucks coffee machine. Great cafeteria. Nice place to do research.

Cons

Weather is nice during Summer but not so good the rest of the year. Have to work long hours but pay is not hourly so no overtime bonus pay.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are many opportunities, people are great and motivated, many challenges to work on, benefits are great.

    Cons

    Too big so you can get lost if you are not paying attention to your career. Public doesn't think highly of the brand, which is frustrating at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Connect with people, understand consumers, innovate more, reward disruptive ideas, don't be afraid of trying.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Super smart people, passion for technology, team focus, many tools and resources at your finger tips

    Cons

    political, instead of searching for win-win, it can be more focused on conquering/dominating another team

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to think about how to build and encourage a collaborative environment, incentivze people to care more about other teams and peers beside themselves

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
