I was one of the lucky few interns to feel like I was working at a startup with the aim of learning and not making $$$

Pros

Great intern program, GREAT pay, supportive team structure, they spoil you like crazy, beautiful location (Seattle), LOTS of design flexibility with your project, you are treated like a real member of the team

Cons

low key projects in big company - fell like I don't have enough contribution. Good for first internship if you are bound to make lots of mistakes, experience depends A LOT on the individual team and manager - so not guaranteed

Advice to Management

Let the interns have a little more of a say in which project they ca work on. If they are excited about it, you'll get better results

    Pros

    Microsoft hires the best and the brightest. Your colleagues and co-workers will challenge and inspire you.

    Cons

    The former review system resulted in an inability for teams to work together and led to unnecessary drama and challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Now that the review system is being changed, evaluate employees on their contribution to the companies success, rather than a random assessment of their "potential".
