I worked at Microsoft as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

I got exposure to the real world software business as a summer intern. Ideal place to understand the career ladder for a software engineer. Good place to learn and see from the best-in-class people.

Cons

Did not get the feel of a company which i thought it would be when it started with creative spirits and the entrepreneurial hunch. Young talents should be provided with better mentorship and guidance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There can be better ways to break the silos between the different product teams.

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

    Pros

    Microsoft is a great place for people who enjoys family life and work-life balance. Also for people like me, stability and long-term business is a bug plus.

    Cons

    can't complain about anything really. What others deem the biggest cons of Microsoft (the internal conflict) I see as a necessary price to pay for diversity.
