    Pros

    Amazing food, accommodation, culture, people !! The people here are amazing. You find a lot of young minds. They provide a lot of outings for the MACs and they even take you to the US!

    Cons

    Work may be a monotonous. The pay is not really great. They could provide more pay. Also, the projects vary from one place to another. So you need to be a little lucky to get good projects!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing really. They are doing great. Maybe increase the salary for the people in IT

    I worked at Microsoft as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    Did 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 ManagementAdvice

    There can be better ways to break the silos between the different product teams.
