    Its one of the best places to work at, mainly because of the quality of interns coming from all over the world, excellent research scientists, as well as a rich academia culture !!

    I have been working at Microsoft as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Ambiente de trabalho agradável, oportunidade de aprendizado, possibilidade de contato com outros profissionais e projetos envolvendo diferentes áreas, programa de estágio estruturado com flexibilidade e que oferece bons benefícios.

    Cons

    Remuneração e benefícios para diferentes profissionais dependendo da forma de contratação. Remuneração na média do mercado e, portanto, não chega a ser um diferencial. Dificuldade de efetivação no programa de estágio.

    Advice to Management

    Trata-se de um ótimo ambiente de aprendizado. Políticas que reduzissem discrepâncias entre benefícios de funcionários seriam valiosas.
