My manager and mentor helped me a lot throughout my internship. There are also a lot of intern events to help with networking, meeting other teams across the company, and opportunities to create your own events too!

Nothing interesting. Company isn’t particularly anything. Not innovative. Culture is okay in some parts, terrible in others. It’s okay, but nothing to write home about.
Pros
Salary
Cons
Boredom

I was caught up in 2 reorgs in 15 months putting me into a role I wasn't qualified for and never would have been hired into. I was sad to leave the company, which I did voluntarily, but I wasn't able to find a job that I was excited about. They look for very specific educational profiles and ways of thinking even though as a company they talk about diversity. If you have an MBA or CS degree, you'll do fine. Anything else, it's hard to move within the company and difficult to succeed since they have a specific way they do things.
Pros
Internal diversity groups, great company mission, great people
Cons
High pressure, long work days, difficult to succeed without being able to work their very specific way.

I start early in the morning. We have standup around 10-11. Most of my MS interactions is between 12 and 5. Very easygoing culture. Management was very responsive.

At Microsoft, you get to work with a lot of brilliant minds and with products that everyone has heard of. A lot of the tech stack is microsoft specific but they did a good job. Sometimes there is office politics but it's not as common to deal with engineering.
Pros
Great campus, great people, big impact, benefits
Cons
Constanlty changing vision

Job security and advancementIn terms of job security at Microsoft, I’ve always felt secure in my employment. It’s been relatively easy to switch between groups and I have relocated by choice across the country twice to a different office on Microsoft’s dime. I have changed between engineering disciplines as well. Although I do feel changing disciplines slows your advancement through the promotion levels.

Overall, working at Microsoft is rewarding financially and personally, especially with regard to flexible schedules. Accountability is still expected (like any good company).

Plenty of opportunity to move around the company in different roles. So many smart, motivated, passionate people made it a joy to show up to work most days.
Pros
Great co-workers, good work / life balance, plenty of opportunity, cool products. CFO is awesome, always look forward to her all-hands.
Cons
A lot of re-orgs, muddled scope and friction between teams, duplication of work across parts of finance and marketing, compensation (for finance) is on the low-end of the market

Microsoft sets the bar high for places to work that stimulate your mind to want to grow and learn. The culture is positive and all about helping each other achieve your goals. I was very happy there and had to leave due to moving out of state and no offices nearby or remote options.
Pros
Benefits are awesome, culture is positive, work life balance is excellent, food is the best!
Cons
None!

If you are looking for accelerated career progression, you can take on a lot of work. However, you can also keep work life balance. I think it's a great place for parents with kids who want to place family as priority given all the benefits.
Pros
Healthcare

Management has a lot to improve, politics pushes good people away. Overall, the projects were a mix, some good and some bad. Manager plays a huge role in your career progression and the actual work isn't as important as the perception.

Microsoft works to develop some very exciting and ground breaking products. And there are some very hard-working, driven, and brilliant people that I really enjoy working with. However, they have little regard for work life balance, at least during certain phases of the projects.
Pros
Good compensation and benefits
Cons
Poor work life balance
