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

    Pros

    It looks good on your resume.

    Pros

    Co-workers only care about there free time never want to help the customer. Even worse no one truly understands computers here more than my 4 year old daughter. Some of workers are useful at telling me how to solve issues temporarily but never anything innovative or sincere. Leaving as soon as something better comes along.

    No higher cause here just boring job.

    Rework this company from the ground
