    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Flexibility, growth mindset culture, endless opportunities. Incredible leadership that cares about their employees and customers! Great place to work and actually feel like you are making a positive impact on the world around you!

    Cons

    Some of the decisions are top down and hard to follow the “why” behind the direction. But really that is the case in most large organizations.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your people. Continue the growth mindset and culture changes. It is for the best!

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Benefits + 401k. Great pay and compensation. Growth mindset, easy to work your way up. Dominant tech company, not going away soon. Innovative and unique company.

    Cons

    Lack of structure and direction, things change so much. Lots of push back from the higher-ups on projects. Generally, there's only a few people making decisions here.

    Advice to Management

    We just need better structured guidelines on how things are done, and we need to hold people accountable for their actions.

    I worked at Microsoft

    Pros

    Low pay. Given managers responsibilities regularly.

    Cons

    No training and extremely limited direction given to contractor. You must be able to figure it out, hit the ground running and just get it done.

    I worked at Microsoft

    Pros

    The benefits are absolutely incredible and my co-workers were amazing. At first, we were like a big family but management ruined that. Anyways, I had an opportunity to explore new opportunities and gain experience that I'm able to use personally and with other jobs. Microsoft is truly an amazing company and I believe their values are sincere but, of course, there a couple of handful of people who ruin a good thing.

    Cons

    Considering I worked for Microsoft and the bit of insight I knew about Microsoft's finances, eventually I began to feel underpaid. Compared to our competition, retail jobs do not pay a lot unless you're in management or working as a teacher. However, they expect you to handle so much crap and juggle multiple duties that other people are being PAID to do. Management at my store was an absolute joke and it's the reason...

    Advice to Management

    Not quite sure how much corporate values the retail side of Microsoft, but I would continue to keep a close eye on the stores primarily in Atlanta. I loved my co-workers because, at first, we were like a huge family. We always had respectful and responsible fun until management got in the way and began to handle situations unethically. Allow people who have earned and are capable of managing people become managers. Honestly,...

    Pros

    Benefits are fantastic. PTO builds up quickly. Great work like balance.

    Cons

    Pay gap between jobs is very high, and getting to the next level isn't easy.

    Advice to Management

    Create different positions within retail store. Pay more for better quality employees. You have to spend money to make money. You might as well spend it on the internal client.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Some good technology, but not as cutting edge as they lead you to believe.

    Cons

    Poor management. Convoluted sales commission plan and employee rating plan. Definitely buddies taking care of buddies. Behind the curve in lots of technology, like phones, tablets, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Why? You wouldn't listen...
