    I worked at Microsoft as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Very interesting projects

    - Very nice work-life balance; MSR throws cool intern events

    Cons

    Redmond/Seattle area in general aren't as exciting as some other areas like the Bay Area, but nature-wise it's nonetheless stunning

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good worldwide integration between employees
    Any new Microsoft software available to try/use
    Good experiencing shipping AAA products

    Cons

    Some teams are not good, either mediocre IC colleagues or bad manager or even both. This become not the place you want to work at.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compose rocket teams. Ask and accept people's opinion about who do they work with.
