I worked at Microsoft as an intern

Pros

They give you a coding mentor who will help you when you're stuck on a problem.
They provide lots of opportunities to network with your higher ups.
They give out an Intern gift every year, usually one of their latest products (like the Surface Pro).
They increment your hourly wage each time you come back as an intern.

Cons

You're expected to do a lot of self learning as your mentor will likely be very busy with his/her own projects.

    Pros

    Good working environment, great benefits, employees are treated well.
    Smart people all around who are encouraged to think independently and question conventional wisdom. Great engineering focus.

    Cons

    Correctness may sometimes miss customer focus. Multiple disciplines can create communication barriers. May not feel startup like for those who like that feel.

    Former Employee - Software Development Engineer in Redmond, WA

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The people: smart, passionate, interesting. The perks: events, fitness benefit, Prime Card, Orca Card, pay. The location: close to Seattle, beautiful campus. The company: cool new things, also industry staples, tons of opportunities and niches.

    Cons

    Many older products involve tackling a lot of legacy code and trying to read the minds of developers past. Conducive to developing highly specialized skills, but not necessarily more widely applicable technical growth.
