Interesting & challenging work

Software Development Engineer Intern (Former Employee) Redmond, WA

ProsAs one of the worlds largest software companies, you feel that what you are doing there is making a difference. The work is challenging and interesting and the rest of the staff is made out of very bright people willing to help you.

It also has a very fun and laid back environment, the free drinks are awesome though they may make you gain some weight if you abuse them.

ConsYour success as an intern depends a lot on which product group you're on, some managers are much more demanding than others.

Advice to Senior ManagementGo back to Microsoft's truly technical roots and take more risks, it certainly pays off in the long run. Get more technical people at the top of the management food chain as they know best how to handle projects.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
