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

Pros

As an explorer intern I got to experience the three disciplines: dev, test, and pm. I got to interview at the end of my internship for an internship next summer. If you stay on the same team, it is very easy to get offered back a full time offer. There are tons of intern events within the department that I worked and with the interns as a whole. The work environment was great and everyone was very eager to help me. I loved the project that I worked on during the summer.

Cons

I am not a hug fan of the Seattle area. Redmond was very boring to me. I also did not have a car so I really couldn't get around much.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Access to experts on Microsoft technologies, great pay and benefits, interesting work, immediate customer respect based on company affiliation (in most cases)

    Cons

    Microsoft Consulting Services has minimal focus on employee career growth despite continuous claims of being people-focused. Constant manager turnover and too many employees per direct-line supervisor contribute to these issues.

    Advice to Management

    Adapt MCS to align more closely with the July 2013 business group realignment. Do a better job of selling devices.


  2. "Well balanced company."

    Pros

    Wide variety of products and don't need to change the company if you want change of work

    Cons

    You end up working only with MS technologies and stock is struck at current price for a decade.
