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

    Pros

    Interns are given meaningful work and treat them very well. Great culture, everyone at the company is extremely supportive and very accessible.

    Cons

    Intern program has over 1000 people which can get a little overwhelming and make you feel lost in the crowd.
