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

ProsFree drinks all around, flexible timings and informal environment. Lots of events and parties. Tons of options for playing options - pool, foosball, tabletennis, and lot's more. Hyderabad campus is really beautiful. Good Stipend and first two weeks at a good guest house. Work environment not pressurizing. Teammates are really helpful.

ConsAlmost none for an intern. The stipend can be increased a bit though.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good job.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good summer internship

Summer Intern (Former Employee)
Gurgaon, Haryana

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

ProsI got exposure to the real world software business as a summer intern. Ideal place to understand the career ladder for a software engineer. Good place to learn and see from the best-in-class people.

ConsDid not get the feel of a company which i thought it would be when it started with creative spirits and the entrepreneurial hunch. Young talents should be provided with better mentorship and guidance.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere can be better ways to break the silos between the different product teams.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

enjoyed my intern

Software Development Engineer Intern (Former Employee)
Hyderābād

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

ProsVery Helpful and approachable seniors. Great work environment and work culture. Beautiful campus at Hyderabad with great cafeteria and all sorts of sports facilities in case you enjoy playing some. Regular team outings and lunches. Above all at Microsoft you work on products which have a huge impact.

ConsPays a little less than other competitive companies like Google, at least starting salary is less. Being a intern I don't know about career growth and increments.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Microsoft encourages you to work hard, party harder and learn as much as you can.

Intern (Former Employee)
Hyderābād

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

ProsGreat learning resources- Microsoft has a great environment where you are encouraged to learn as much as you can about your field.
Knowledgeable and passionate co-workers who always bail you out. You get to learn a lot from your peers.
Garage- My personal favourite. You get to showcase your creativity and coding skills and earn prizes at the same time!
Community-MS encourages people to give back to the community, both time and financial aid. I have seen people helping each other out.
Work-life balance - Flexible working hours and work from home are an added bonus

Cons1) You get addicted to the free food, leisure time and the above pros. Coming back to college and adapting was very difficult.
2) You sometimes feel alienated when you realize that everyone can dance except you.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good exposure, fun place to work

Research Intern (Former Employee)
Bangalore

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

ProsOpen ended about ideas, there is no strict hierarchy of employers - free to talk to anyone we want and seek their advice. Good work environment and not a lot of pressure

ConsSome projects may be a little unstructured in the beginning, but a little dedication will get the most out of them. Salary might be less for some (in India)
