Former Employee - Program Manager Intern in Redmond, WA (US)
Former Employee - Program Manager Intern in Redmond, WA (US)

I worked at Microsoft as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Pay, great gifts (Samsung series 9 ultra book), exciting and real work, individual office!, intern speaker series with Steve Ballmer and VPs, amazing events with private concerts (Young the Giant, Alabama Shakes), the list goes on.
This was by far the best internship experience I've had. I felt that I made a difference and learned plenty along the way. Even if you don't see yourself going to Microsoft full time, this is still an amazing internship opportunity!

Cons

About 1500 interns so you can't meet everyone.
Redmond is boring, but it's only a 25 minute drive to Seattle in no traffic.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Great job with the intern program.

    Current Employee - Project Manager in Hyderābād (India)

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I'm involved in good work. The work environment is and the work ethic is great. The campus is fantastic. Now seems to be a great time to work for Microsoft. There are so many innovative releases and so much energy.

    Cons

    There is no work from home policy. Some streams (mostly test) seems to be looked down upon a little. Some budgets seem to be more tight than you'd expect from a company like MS. Compensation is a bit lower than some competitors (esp Amazon, Google etc.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please evolve some work from home policy. Please take a look at whether all streams (Dev/Test/PM) are on par. This doesn't seem to be the case.
