    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, smart people, exposure to ever changing technology and awareness of what is moving the market

    Cons

    Integrity is not valued. Promotions based on who you know, not what you contributed, what you are skilled at or how you treated your people. At least 50% of the senior leadership are unethical and not someone you would want a child to see as a role model. Women and minorities will have to work twice as hard and will not get the same opportunities as their white or Indian counterparts.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house at Director level and above. Look at the people who have left and their reasons why - in many cases you will see a manager or chain of command who should be removed.

    Pros

    Fun, friendly team environment, a lot of support for employee development whether that is by your peers or management, helps you stay in touch with what's new in the PC/smart phone/gaming industries

    Cons

    At the immediate store, there is a lot of support and push to get things done but there can be a lot of red tape if the "something" must be first approved by corporate

    Advice to Management

    You guys are doing a great job really, keep it up. As far as the guys up in corporate, well hopefully all of the processes will be figured out in the next few years so things can run smoother in the field/on the sales floor.
