    I have been working at Microsoft part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are fantastic and there are massive amounts of opportunities for upward mobility.

    Cons

    Not necessarily an overall con, but the upward mobility is based on your ability to relocate, which I cannot do right now. I understand that this is how it is with most jobs anyways, but I felt like I had to mention this as a sort of personal con.

    I worked at Microsoft (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great stepping stone, decent benefits.

    Cons

    Hard to balance work and life. Management makes it so difficult to take days off or accomodate certain aspect. Those focuses changed in the past 3 years. At the beginning it was an amazing work environment, as time went by they started to become pushy about goals and sales and forgot about the culture.
    Also, very hard to go to corporate from Retail. Nl career path development.

    Advice to Management

    More vacation days, better health insurance and work with your employees to make them feel appreciated.

  3. "Very outgoing positive environment!"

    Always good to have more training.
