    Simply Unforgettable and Awesome!

    Summer Intern Software Development Engineer In Test (Current Employee) Hyderābād

    ProsNo particular dress code, flexible work timings, option to choose what you want to work on, enough opportunities to try every profile present here, free cold-drinks, coffee , employee satisfaction is the best!

    ConsNo cons as such, just that Microsoft as a whole should have a common logo on all its products so that people can recognize it more. no people just recognize the individual products like windows, office, bing, xbox, but not all know that its all of Microsoft! One more con... The food is so good that I think I will get FAT .

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe management is awesome.. starting from the mentor to the manager to the manager of manager, everyone takes care of you very well.
