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

Pros

Reasonably good pay and benefits, wide range of available fields to work on covered, everyone can find something for themselves (from low-level coding to abstract research), nice corporate culture.

Cons

Some teams/projects are mismanaged, and there's significant waste of resources in some departments.

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

    Pros

    Best internship program in the world. Interns get special events: Intern Signature Event was a concert with Macklemore and DeadMau5 and the Intern Gift was a Surface Pro. Intern Speaker Series with Execs. Intern Day of Care (Volunteering). Mt Rainier Hike. Free tickets to Sounders and Mariners games.

    Microsoft has many businesses and products to work in: OS, Mobile, Productivity Software, Search Engine, Cloud, Business Solutions, Car Software, etc.

    Three roles to chose from: PM, Dev, Test.

    People. The interns I met are some of the most amazing people friends I have.

    Seattle is beautiful during the summer.

    The pay is great.

    Cons

    Each teams operates a bit differently. Your experience could vary from team to team.

    A uncommitted manager could ruin your work experience.

    Some parts of Microsoft are falling behind their competitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring Sinofsky back.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time

    Pros

    The work-life balance is very good. Team of highly talented people and very casual environment.

    Cons

    Not much cons. Typical problems that come with really big organization. Sometimes competition can get really stiff.
