I worked at Microsoft as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Great perks. Very warm atmosphere. Very nice campus. Extremely nice food for discounted prices. Intern events and special bonuses. Make no mistake, you will work hard, but you will play even harder.

Cons

Seattle weather. Historically it's mostly sunny from July 4th on until September or so. If you like the gloom and dark by all means, come in early spring, fall or over the winter.

Advice to Management

Perfect job. Keep it up!
