    I have been working at Microsoft as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    My team was full of both bright and fun people who made going to work every day a pleasure, not only because it was fun, but because they were knowledgeable and reliable.

    Cons

    I was not placed in the proper team. I should have been in a lower-level position as I had never developed a website before and hadn't shown interest in doing so. That said, I grew from the experience, and getting hired full-time to the right team was a relatively painless process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to the interests of intern candidates. Although you can do any job for 12 weeks, it unfortunately will often pigeon-hole us at other companies. As an embedded developer before coming to Microsoft, I was quite worried I was only going to find web-dev jobs from other companies.

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

    Pros

    Flexibility, products, resources. The changed to the new review model should improve the collaboration between teams and individuals and make employees more productive.

    Cons

    Lack of African American representation within the company. Not sure too many black folks will want to move to the Pacific Northwest, but it's a great place to live.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to implement changes similar to the new review model.
