    Pros

    Great training process and culture. The employers not only focus on your technical skills, but on your overall behaviors.

    Cons

    There is no shortcoming currently, I am just a graduate student and feel great honor to work in such a good company.

    I worked at Microsoft (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Tons of benefits, they definitely spoil their interns and make sure you are getting the best experience possible

    Cons

    It is hard to rise and get promoted to managerial positions. Relaxed culture (could be a benefit), doesn't push you too hard to get out of your comfort zone.

    Advice to Management

    Empowering interns and better defined roles for the explore program where 3 interns work together.

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

    Pros

    Great company events, activities, and parties.

    Cons

    Biggest con: You have no say in what group you want to work for your internship, they just put you somewhere.

    As an intern, you will often feel that you are being coddled and overly congratulated over little work-- can be a bit disillusioning. Depending on where you work in the company, you may feel bored with your work at times. At one point during the summer the monotony of the work was getting to high that I think I felt depressed for the first time.

    Pros

    Payment and other benefits
    Fun intern experience
    Free and open team & environment

    Cons

    Actual work is quite limited such that not much innovation / personal input can be stimulated

    Advice to Management

    To my team, they were friendly. To the project management, I did have some issues with the design section of the work. Hope they could speed up on intern work.

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

    Pros

    Probably the best intern salary compared to Google/Apple/Amazon especially given that in Washington prices and taxes are lower. Subsidized housing

    Cons

    Tools are definitely not very good, build system, source control etc etc etc. But this is going to better soon I think

    Advice to Management

    Become more agile and faster, use more open-source software, bring free food please as Google does.
