I have been working at Microsoft part-time for more than a year

Pros

a well-structured company, as a part-time student working there, employers are patient to teach you stuff as long as one wants to learn

Cons

too well structure and hierarchy, couldn't feel the passion about creativity or its own products

    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great people, great technologies, great projects, interesting engagements.

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be a challenge, but this is cyclical in nature and didn't bother me much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up.

    Great benefits with a lot of swag.
    Students get an MSDNA subscription.
    New laptop or tablet provided.
    Get to network with many Microsoft employees.

    Pay is very very low.
    Some of the work is sometimes very tedious.
    You really need to expand your social group in order to accomplish many of the tasks assigned.

    Pay students a little more or go back to weekly payment.s
