A good start from Microsoft

Intern (Current Employee)
Beijing, Beijing (China)

I have been working at Microsoft as an intern for more than 5 years

ProsI don't know much about Microsoft, but know Microsoft Research Asia. As a industrial lab, we have freedom and support to do great research, both for improving products directly or long term purpose. The atmosphere is creative.

ConsAs a industrial lab, Microsoft Research Asia has high standard facility but less students compared to university. Researchers have to be accustomed to do experiments most of the time.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
