    I worked at Microsoft part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Management focused on developing employees
    - Great mix of technical & people-oriented skills
    - Awesome products you can be proud of
    - Free drinks for employees & customers!
    - Fun, engaging environment thats always changing
    - Room to specialize role (community, gaming, sales, service)
    - Great Pay for retail

    Cons

    - As with any retail job, weekend/holiday hours are brutal
    - Coworkers can sometimes be lazy (I'm sure this varies from store to store)
    - Very difficult to move up into a corporate Microsoft role from the store. Have to be a stellar performer to even be considered

    Nothing really specific to the position or company, really just normal retail job downside.
    Working weekends and holidays like Black Friday but that is about it.
