I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Huge ambition
Driven people
Big enough to chase the dreams

Cons

Getting big, impersonal, and unwieldy
Inefficient - empowerment leads to uncoordinated and wasteful action

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Realize that people do business with people they like; sellers sell what they know; employees recommend what they feel great about. EVERY individual employee is valuable in this equation, not just the top 1%.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Retail is a less then desirable field but its nice to find a company that makes the field easy to live in. Great benefits for a retailer especially in a time when most are cutting benefits to save money.

    Cons

    Retail is retail, hours are long and change every week. Review is for the retail division, opportunity to advance is rare. Recruitment focuses outside the company not at promoting within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When possible set hours helps especially if you can. Not giving a set schedule just because you don't want them to get used to it.
