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

    Pros

    Good salary, flew me in for an interview. My manager is nice and supportive, flexible work schedule, good food, take care of their employees.

    Cons

    The job itself is not super interesting. It's a big company which means you are probably going to do a small part of something big, and I prefer doing big parts of smaller stuff.
