    Pros

    Company was well-established and had a great rapport with Microsoft. Easy going team. Great Salary. Hard work recognized. Gift cards for anniversaries.

    Cons

    Micro-managing. Too many arts and crafts...not enough focus on work. Managers would ask employees to stay late to decorate offices of different managers for birthdays, etc. Not professional, and a waste of Microsoft's time.

    Advice to Management

    All coordinator jobs are not equal, and have different challenges. Bigger raises and not prorated. Stop wasting Microsoft's time with arts and crafts, cook offs and decorating of work space.
