No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Microsoft as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Great people to work with - really interested in helping you grow. Fantastic perks, pretty good salary, and if you get lucky with corporate housing you can be really close. Intern events were really something.

Cons

Experience depends heavily on your team - but most people I know had a great time.

Advice to Management

Great ideas at the lower levels that don't always make their way up.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great technical challenges Good work life balance Great perks and amenities Good pay Love the offices instead of cubicles

    Cons

    Too many managers and people who want to be one One person does all the work and has probably 2to 3 people managing them If you are lucky you will have a good manager who protects you from PMs and others.
