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

The work life is better balanced than in other companies but the work is boring and the management is sluggish. The payscale is low, hence, not the best place to be in.

Work life balance for an intern is nothing. Intern is expected to do work all day and also as this time the internship was WFH so we didn't get that much learning experience as compared to on-site internship.
Pros
Opportunity to work with really cool and talented people.
Cons
Hectic schedule

Microsoft is a great company to work for. Benefits and WLB is good (depending on your org). Career progression is great for my group, quite a few principal level software devs that are pretty young. Of course, this all depends on what group you work with.

Will not define, as my experience was both very positive and somewhat negative. Worked on teams that were both successful and unsuccessful. Had amazing managers and a few that were psychopaths.

A productive work environment with all the process done in a systematic way with all the documentation and scrum meetings. Learning new things and interacting with the team is the most enjoyable part of the Job.
