I have been working at Microsoft

Pros

The internship program is obviously designed to fix any problems before they occur. I had very clear project expectations, lots of positive feedback, great working conditions, and excellent compensation.

Cons

The only major downside was the fact my project had trouble finding programmers to actually implement the planned feature, but my manager compensated very well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's hard to think of any way to improve - my overall experience was amazing. I guess the major problem is trying to coordinate so many projects in so many discrete departments.

    I have been working at Microsoft

    Pros

    Diversity and openness about the overall strategy and departments in the company. Brilliant and experienced people

    Cons

    Very limited knowledge of things happening outside Redmond. Very laid back attitude and innovation is dead

    Strive for innovation and take risks if you want better opportunities.
