    I have been working at Microsoft full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, great benefits, fun atmosphere if you're not in a professional role

    Cons

    Not sure where all of the work-life balance comments are coming from because my experience is the opposite. Unprofessional work environment, doesn't matter how high of a quality job you do- they only reward the people who fluff and kiss up to them. It is one giant PR campaign. If you are in retail thinking you can use it as a stepping stone to corporate think again. The odds aren't in your favor. Unreasonable expectations without the resources to attain them, changing work load with constant "stretch" assignments, no one knows what is going on and everyone is afraid to give you an answer because they don't know if it's right. It reminds me of being passed around on an 800 support line except it's your own internal company. Absolutely no autonomy.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together or quit growing the team. You're just adding to the chaos. There is no consistent line of communication. Quit throwing away money on campaigns to make the stores look like they're busy and invest the capital in more efficient processing to generate revenue.
