I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good benefits, smart and professional coworkers, flexible daily schedule, beautiful offices, good work equipment provided

Cons

Too much "Process" can result in less than excellent product quality, also many of the products are not bringing value to the industry/society.

Advice to Management

Try to offer a great, innovative service to the customer, focus later on revenue generation.

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

    Pros

    You get to do interesting and important work, even as an intern. The people are nice, helpful, and personable. There are free drinks (Coke products, Pepsi products, fruit juice, milk, and Starbucks coffee). They have an internal shuttle service that takes you anywhere you need to go and commuter buses with wifi.

    Cons

    For me, the only real downside has been how far it is from my home, girlfriend, and family. It'll be better when I come back full time though because they're paying relocation for my girlfriend and putting her on my health insurance even though we aren't married.

    Advice to Management

    Most of the PMs aren't actually useful. You could easily do with fewer of them.
