"I've worked at Microsoft Research as a research intern during the summer of 2012 and 2013. The company provides really good environments for research, and a lot of brilliant scientists are working and provide many opportunities to learn from them. In addition, they can properly manage many summer interns with well-designed programs like social events and surprising presents. The experience interning there can strongly motivate me to work."

"Moving due to needing to relocate. Other than that, Microsoft has been a great company to work for, with great opportunities and a work-life balance. It is a huge company, so be prepared to have a completely different experience depending on your team and manager. You own your career, and moving internally is easy if you are having good performance."

"Bureaucratic and top-heavy with lots of people getting promoted based on relationships vs merit. Would advise against working there for any non-tech / non-product folks as the product runs the show."
