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

    Pros

    As a giant tech company, Microsoft really values the interns and sincerely tries to keep the interns as full-time employees. They hold a lot of events and provide good opportunities for interns to experience the life of working at Microsoft.

    Cons

    Sometimes you are feeling that you are only a tiny part of your project.
    The promotion in such a big company is also slow. You get a promotion every two or three years and that is it. You can hardly get chance to become a manager in 5 years. But I think it is the normal case in big companies.


  2. "Great opportunity to experience the broad industry and work with some amazing people"
