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

    Pros

    The work place is so much fun and my coworkers are great! There is so much to learn everyday. As a product advisor, communication between each potential buyer is key and these skills are developed through coaching from managers and each other PA.

    Cons

    Opportunity for advancement would mean having to move cities which could be a deal breaker for some yet understandable.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very little BOH for managers. GM's are FOH most all of the time.

    Cons

    Horrible bonus structure. No raises for best performers. No matter how much sales increase over previous year, no bonus is awarded. Horrible HR department. Company is divided from DM on up and GM on down.

    Advice to Management

    Pay for performance!
