Excellent Company to work for

Software Development Engineer Intern (Current Employee)
Mountain View, CA (US)

I have been working at Microsoft as an intern for less than a year

ProsThe 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
