    I have been working at Microsoft part-time

    Pros

    working at volt I got to say I have worked for microsoft

    Cons

    treated bad,
    other workers where very stingy and acted like gamers rather then working professionals,
    I was on call,
    job availability was bad,
    I quite but they keep calling me in to work to this day,
    no advancement to the actual Microsoft buildings,
    very low pay

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to have a company work for you to hire people make sure they are not a horrible place to work for, that says a lot about Microsoft choices and company as a whole.
