    Pros

    Challenging environment, you can really learn and grow. Enables you to be at the cutting edge of knowledge in your field. You get to work with super bright people.

    Cons

    You need to be very resilient, willing to debate your ideas, and prepared to support your assertions with solid research.

    Advice to Management

    Harness the potential of your employees. There are pockets of "chronism" across the company, and meritocracy sometimes takes a back seat.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview

    The Interview process consisted of 2 rounds. The first round was the technical round. It lasted for around one and a half hours. The second round was the HR round. It lasted for about 30 mins, and was much more relaxed. I was asked 2 technical questions in the HR round, but they were much easier than the technical round.
