    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.
