I have been working at Microsoft as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

The company took good care of the interns, even the ones not in the Redmond location. Microsoft had a fun culture, interesting events, and an overall well organized intern program.

Cons

Microsoft is a large company that can be stuck in process and organization, that might slow down work progress and stifle creativity in favor of organized productivity.

    Great company, but I was in a hostile work environment so left a lot to be desired.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great pay, great people for the most part. Interesting work, fast paced and very diverse. Many perks, great campus and overall a good place to work.

    Cons

    Several people in leadership roles acted like children much of the time. Corporate VP was a loud mouth who had a permanent strain in his arm from patting himself on the back for work other did. GM in my group was so biased that I was amazed at her conduct. I'm glad I'm no longer there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring people that act like little kids during meetings.
