    Pros

    The company is a dream to work for. Good pay and excellent benefits. Great team members and management is almost consistently great.

    Cons

    Usually a small work space for technicians to work in, although they provide all the tools you can need and more. Customer base varies from state demographic, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Please listen a little closer on what employees future goals are, and instead of in one ear out the other, help us proactive on advancing with this amazing company.

    I worked at Microsoft as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As an IT professional I have had my share of grief and frustrations while deploying Microsoft products so it was nice to have the opportunity to streamline the process. Also, the pay and working remotely was a big plus.

    Cons

    Department heads and managers seem to work very hard and convoluting the process.

    Advice to Management

    Don't reply on Visual Studio/BI information as sole metric for determining employee performance.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love working for Microsoft because of the people that I work with inside of the company and those who I have the opportunity to interact with outside of the organization.

    Cons

    I don't enjoy the push to become more diverse as an organization for the sake of diversity. I think the organization should seek the most qualified individual for specific roles and jobs. If we have the opportunity to bring in personnel that are experienced and qualified and also represent diverse groups, then all the better for groups and the organization as a whole.

    I worked at Microsoft (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working at Microsoft was the best professional experience of my life, really enjoyed my time there.

    Cons

    1. Interview processes are no fun, mean spirited, they string second place candidates along needlessly.
    2. Once in a certain level - you're stuck - no room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the L65 Glass Ceiling.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, stock purchase options, co-workers, customers

    Cons

    Inconsistent hours (schedule), very difficult to grow with the company, specialty stores are looked down on, bonus scale for specialty vs full line is bogus,

    Advice to Management

    Managers are fine. It's corporate that is disconnected from the store. The looks of our store are not a good representation of Microsoft as a company. I think there could be some money invested into upgrading the older specialty locations so that we can better serve our customers.
