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

    Pros

    Microsoft puts together a highly structured programs for interns. I received great support and mentorship from my manager(s). Salary and compensation seem to be competitive for the industry.

    Cons

    Interning in the Bay Area (CA), as opposed to the headquarter (Redmond, WA) limited the range of social activities that were available for the interns.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Constantly working on bleeding edge software with large budgets to support projects
    Ability to grow knowledge of various technological disciplines

    Cons

    Tons of office politics. Since the reviews are based on a popularity contest is you are not everyone's best friend you get constantly screwed.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the personal review system, base it off of the team's progress and the individuals contribution to the teams success or failure
