Former Intern - Research Intern in Redmond, WA

I worked at Microsoft as an intern (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 (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.

    Pros

    Working on the cutting edge technologies that contribute to the lives of a great many people. Being involved with some of the sharpest people in computing today.

    Cons

    The review model pits individuals against each other at times. Team work is valued but not a practiced commodity.
