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

    Pros

    Good benefits. Good salary. Lots of perks and discounts on Microsoft products.

    Cons

    Way too much micro managing going on. You would think a company that tells you they hire the best of the best would let you work without having to constantly check in or answer to 5 people every day. Lots of pointless conference calls. Lots of redundant management.

    Hiring is more about who you know, not your merit or experience, or worse, not to fill your AA quota.

    Advice to Management

    Hire based on who is best qualified for the job, not what makes your "diversity" numbers look better. Also, let go and trust your employees to do the right thing, and then verify. Don't verify every 3 minutes.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Retail is a less then desirable field but its nice to find a company that makes the field easy to live in. Great benefits for a retailer especially in a time when most are cutting benefits to save money.

    Cons

    Retail is retail, hours are long and change every week. Review is for the retail division, opportunity to advance is rare. Recruitment focuses outside the company not at promoting within.

    Advice to Management

    When possible set hours helps especially if you can. Not giving a set schedule just because you don't want them to get used to it.
