    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Very 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.

    Cons

    Pays 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.

    Pros

    Great 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

    Cons

    1) 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.

    Pros

    Open 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

    Cons

    Some 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)
