    Former Employee - Doctoral Intern

    I worked at Microsoft full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Researchers here work much like they would in academia on self-directed projects.
    Colleagues are smart and able to offer insightful feedback.
    The facilities are lovely and well-appointed.
    Pay is generous; vacation time and benefits are more than adequate.

    Cons

    There are very few cons to working at MSR.
    I worked as a doctoral intern and I was disappointed that there were not more opportunities to be hired full-time upon finishing my degree.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Easy to move around and work on different products, learn new skills, etc. Best health benefits I've heard of. Great work life balance - not many people are actually working more than 40 hours/week when it comes down to it.

    Cons

    The company feels stagnant, the days of stock making millionaires is long gone. Not entrepreneurial at all, you are a number.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop chasing tail lights.
