    I worked at Microsoft as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people, the flexibility and the food.

    Cons

    Interns can end up being used as cheap labor. They promise so much in the interviews and in the induction. For instance the stretch projects were non-existent.

    Compensation is very poor. With so many international interns joining there is barely enough to make rent.

    The level of work and experience of interns depend largely on the the manager. Some managers give full responsibility and embrace the interns role, while unfortunately most managers just don't care.

    The upgrade to a graduate role after is only reserved for a few interns. With about 40 interns 12 or less will get kept on.

    Overall it needs to be more structured. The role should be defined for the intern

    Advice to Management

    Structure the internship

    Pros

    good perks, proper work life balance. Flexible working hours, decent pay. Comapany cares for you. Organizes everything fpr you from commute to Health and fitness. Food is subsidized. Snacks are free.

    Cons

    Since it is a huge company visibility for your work is not always gaurenteed. Also things tend to go very slowly.

    Advice to Management

    There is some degree of repeated work among different teams. Better ways to collaborate between teams may be done. Freen lunch could being you on par with google in terms of perks since that is the only thing missing
