Great place to work!

I have been working at Microsoft

Pros

People working with you are very smart kind and helpful. You are likely to have your own office which is not common amount other softweare companies.

Cons

Not really any cons. The food is not free unlike some companies which I think is one of the most useful perk that can be offered to any developer.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you want you can move from one position to another getting more and more responsibilities while learning. I'll always be grateful for the opportunities Microsoft gave me.

    Cons

    It gets political sometimes, but it might not be like this now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to give motivated employee with great potential to learn on the job, don't ask for years of experience on a particular subject matter, and you will find truly amazing people.

    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.
