    Former Employee - Interaction Design Intern in Cambridge, East of England, England

    I worked at Microsoft (less than a year)


    Diverse and interesting employees, collaborative environment, novel research projects, freedom to pursue research goals.


    Long hours, insufficient access to healthy food, older office cubicle environment, several layers of bureaucracy, confusing travel and research expense reimbursement,.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Closer management of project and a more in-depth understanding of employees' work would yield results faster.
