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

Pros

+ World class researchers
+ Friendly environment
+ Great projects
+ Lots of perks for the interns
+ Weather is great during the summer
Great experience overall

Cons

Nothing in particular. 3 months may not be enough for a full fledged project, so it takes a lot of effort, but it is worth it

    I have been working at Microsoft as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good W2 hourly rate. End of contract is always in sight.

    Cons

    They treat their contractors like a red-headed step child. A group that is in trouble will hire a contractor to be the fall guy. Just know up front what you are getting into.

    Advice to Management

    Stop rewarding for individual achievement and push towards team achievement. Makes for a less hostile environment.
