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.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Amazing people, global business, dynamic, fast moving and ever changing. You can easily have your entire career within the company and never get bored.

    Cons

    Not for those who don't like change all the time. Very fast paced and as with most large companies, it can feel soul-less at times. If you have difficulty setting work-life boundaries, watch out as this place will keep you busy 24/7 so boundaries are required to survive!

    Advice to Management

    Your people are and will always be your greatest asset. Don't forget it!
