Pros

The internship program at Microsoft is excellent. They seem to treat interns as full time employees in terms of work. They also have lots of pretty fun events over the course of the summer and you get a chance to meet a lot of other interns and network within the company. They also pay really well.

Cons

The project I was given could have been more interesting, but that seems to vary a lot between interns.

    Pros

    Flexible hours and friendly people.

    Cons

    Lots of work coming in at random times, so it can be a little hard to separate work from social life.

    Pros

    You will be working in a high speed and world-class business environment, so you will be able to have a chance to grow yourself that helps building your career.

    Cons

    it is a huge company so sometimes making decision seems too late because they tend to wait until everything is ready.

    Advice to Management

    It will be nice if management thinks more about end-to-end customer experience (from before-purchase, using product, to customer-support). Because of the size of the company, each division is focusing on their business area only, and divisions sometimes dis-connected.
