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

Pros

Microsoft is located in Redmond, WA where you can have really nice weather during the summer. There are tons of nice and stimulating people in Microsoft, and tons of projects that are stimulating, challenging, and fun. I liked the food at the food court; there are diversity from pasta and burgers to pad thai and pho. You will absolutely love your experience at Microsoft. Plus, free sodas all the time.

Cons

There are not so many cons about working at Microsoft as an intern. But it is well known that their management somehow does not always work well; teams could be in a not-so-good relationship with other teams and all.
