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

Pros

- A lot of smart people around
- All cutting edge technologies
- High speed hardware availability
- Free coffee and drinks
- There are always people who are experts in your area of need
- Nice playground, and on-campus cafeteria

Cons

- No free lunch/ dinner.
- Very big company; so dependencies are large. Each department has their own priority. So, you have to stall your research until you hear back from the product team, which takes over a week sometimes.
