    I worked at Microsoft as an intern

    Pros

    Interning at Microsoft was a fantastic experience. They have enough events to keep you wildly busy and the Intern Signature Event this year was Daya and the Chainsmokers. Overall a very wonderful experience full of learning with lots of great peers and coworkers.

    Cons

    It's not to say that all interns experience this, but my manager was absent a lot so I had to struggle a lot on my own.
