Former Employee - Program Manager Intern  in  Redmond, WA (US)

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

Pros

Pay, great gifts (Samsung series 9 ultra book), exciting and real work, individual office!, intern speaker series with Steve Ballmer and VPs, amazing events with private concerts (Young the Giant, Alabama Shakes), the list goes on.
This was by far the best internship experience I've had. I felt that I made a difference and learned plenty along the way. Even if you don't see yourself going to Microsoft full time, this is still an amazing internship opportunity!

Cons

About 1500 interns so you can't meet everyone.
Redmond is boring, but it's only a 25 minute drive to Seattle in no traffic.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Great job with the intern program.

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

    Pros

    Great perks. Very warm atmosphere. Very nice campus. Extremely nice food for discounted prices. Intern events and special bonuses. Make no mistake, you will work hard, but you will play even harder.

    Cons

    Seattle weather. Historically it's mostly sunny from July 4th on until September or so. If you like the gloom and dark by all means, come in early spring, fall or over the winter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perfect job. Keep it up!
