I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great benefits, lots of products, locations and teams to choose from, great culture and good work-life balance

Cons

Bad execution of products, thinking out-of the box, ability to adapt to change.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give a chance to people who want to make a change. Driving strategy from top down doesn't provide great results always.

    Study labs can be reviewed before school start. For instance, the last lab we attended; in Haccettepe University, sequence of computers were not very good condition.

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

    Pros

    Great company to have on your resume. Very supportive co-workers, lots of opportunity for growth, and always something exciting to work on.

    Cons

    At times I feel out of the loop on a lot of things, which makes it difficult to do my job. A few internal services don't always work, and some subscriptions literally took a year for me to receive (employee MSDN).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on keeping on. The company is heading in the right direction, the values are solid, just need to keep working at it and improve the little things.
