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

Pros

Great atmosphere with lots of friendly, talented co-workers. Most Type-As, but nobody was unprofessional. Everyone was willing to assist in my development, and they really cared about your future with the company.

Cons

It was a four-month internship so there wasn't too long to leave a bad taste in my mouth. It is difficult to get full-time within the organization, as it is in most places. Microsoft typically hired people with many years of industry experience, which made the entry doors rather barred for young.

Advice to Management

Hire younger people.
