Pros

+ Lots of opportunities to participate in big projects
+ Get to work with people around the globe
+ Great pay
+ Unique opportunity to see the hundreds of careers that are out there !

Cons

- There is not a well structured plan for interns
- You need to look for other projects to learn more, as an intern you're underestimated and your tasks will be somewhat limited or "easy"
- Several managers intervene with your activities and responsibilities which is confusing

Advice to Management

Define a plan for interns and do not underestimate them !

    Pros

    Great organization, team and people. One of the best positions you can have in MS. It combines both technical and strategic skills.

    Cons

    Once in TE position, it is often said that it is difficult to move to other positions in the company, however, even if the number isn't as high as in other segments, many did.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, great people, decent pay and fun environment, lots to learn

    Cons

    fast paced, be weary of contractor managers. They need to prove themselves so they may get out of line from time to time.

    Advice to Management

    don't be so stuck up, help others develop. help them grow. Teach!. you are the creator of Windows OS!!. Teach your fellow minions.
