I worked at Microsoft as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Focus on research projects, renowned researchers, well-designed intern programs, many opportunities working with very famous researchers. Researchers can extract papers from your projects even if they are not much successful.

Cons

Even though you showed good performance, the company does not given any offer. You can only obtain publication, chances to expand your research connections, and some salary (which is slightly better than other companies).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Very flexible, free, you may work at home, and you can work in anywhere you want.
