Great place to work as a summer intern.

Intern (Former Employee)
Redmond, WA (US)

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

ProsThe internship program at Microsoft is excellent. They seem to treat interns as full time employees in terms of work. They also have lots of pretty fun events over the course of the summer and you get a chance to meet a lot of other interns and network within the company. They also pay really well.

ConsThe project I was given could have been more interesting, but that seems to vary a lot between interns.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
