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.

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

Simply Unforgettable and Awesome!

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

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

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.

Great place for research

Research Intern (Former Employee)
Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)

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

ProsThe company culture was fun, coffee was great and you could talk and collaborate with numerous world-class researchers in machine learning, algorithms, networks, and so on. My boss was extremely knowledgeable and always open to new ideas. The pay was more than enough for me.

ConsCambridge is a rather small city and housing is expensive. Also, the jobs in research can potentially have less security as they are the first ones to go if the company is in trouble.
