I was one of the lucky few interns to feel like I was working at a startup with the aim of learning and not making $$$

Explore Intern (Rotation Program) (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA (US)

I worked at Microsoft as an intern for less than a year

ProsGreat intern program, GREAT pay, supportive team structure, they spoil you like crazy, beautiful location (Seattle), LOTS of design flexibility with your project, you are treated like a real member of the team

Conslow key projects in big company - fell like I don't have enough contribution. Good for first internship if you are bound to make lots of mistakes, experience depends A LOT on the individual team and manager - so not guaranteed

Advice to Senior ManagementLet the interns have a little more of a say in which project they ca work on. If they are excited about it, you'll get better results

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
