    Pros

    As intern you get a lot of free stuff. You get to go to many intern events, network with a lot of very talented people your age.

    If based outside Redmond you'll probably feel left out as other offices don't get a big slice of cake and thus projects and other developers are not that exciting.

    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.

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

    Pros

    The best part of working at Microsoft was an intern's work is considered equally important as a full time employee's work. Great work culture. Got to learn a lot of technical as well as soft skills.

    Cons

    Maybe they can improve flexibility in choosing the projects for interns.
