    Pros

    Give you lots of room to grow and learn new things on process , tools , Agile to Waterfall - with fast pace work items driving for results

    Cons

    Can be at times too much work or not structured in the work depending on the group or team in. The big teams making money are best teams to be in, there are some smaller teams ( products, services) that are great but if your team does not make a lot money you can be in for some real challenges

    I have been working at Microsoft part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent benefits package. Part time gets almost the same insurance options as full-time. Accured paid time off. Tuition reinburstment. Basically if you're maybe in highschool or starting college this might be a decent job, otherwise I can't recommend it.

    Cons

    Moving up in the company is not easy at all, espically when your manager favors hiring externally instead of promoting internally. There's huge problems with favoritism, and Store Managers work horribly under any type of stress. You're constantly reminded the retail stores aren't making the company any money, and that your employment is almost a gift. Yearly, the entire company structure changes and you're expected to immediately fit into their new mold. While there is zero commission, you're expected to sell like your job depends on it. People with absolutely no experience whom have just started with the company get promoted over people who have worked there for years since tenure isn't looked at for growth. Work environment can be fun however a lot of times its extremely childish and ridiculous with constant cheering, clapping, yelling. If you go through their NSO program you'll know all about this. Most of the time you're treated like you're in kindergarden. Bonus is based on sales and customer satisfaction survey. However, if your store isn't making huge business sales, your bonus will never amount to anything. Raises are yearly and the absolute most you can make is 4%. Most employees only get 2% raise. It's pretty horrible.
