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

Pros

Great compensation, fun activities, fabulous intern gifts- you can tell that money was really thrown your way as an intern.

Cons

Office work can get tedious, some interns were given projects that weren't utilized after they were gone.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Collaborative and flexible schedules. Microsoft has good benefits and wealth of learning opportunity because it has huge selections of articles, books, and media in the library.

    Cons

    Depending on the group(s) you're in but some groups practice discrimination and only hired their own kind of people (ie..East Indian People).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be more involved in employee selection and careful on who you put in charge of hiring. Group diversity is most important and harnessing the most talents.
