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

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)

Good atmosphere to work in, flexible timings, few restrictions and a good pay

Intern (Former Employee)
Hyderābād

I worked at Microsoft

ProsVery flexible timings, and cool environment. People are very cooperative. Good salary, good facilities. Home drop service. Parties and trips are very frequent

ConsThe projects worked on in India are not very critical to the company. Such projects are worked on at Redmond. You are doing no better job compared to other IT cos, only your pay is more.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe leadership is great. They will motivate you in the most appropriate way in the interest of the company. The pay is good.

Great benefits and people if you can find them

User Experience Design Intern (Current Employee)
Redmond, WA (US)

I have been working at Microsoft as an intern for less than a year

ProsPay, stability, work/life balance (big corp, not held too accountable for much), Seattle-based, working with some tech legends

ConsLack of culture, feels stale, they're changing things up but there's only a few groups that have a great culture and you have to know what you want beforehand to get yourself there. Little impact, waterfall methods. Median age 40+

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