Business (Former Employee), Redmond, WADecember 17, 2014
Pros: lots of things to drive employee morale
Cons: roles are ill defined
It can be fun and the company takes care of its employees. But it is too large and filled with redundant roles. Hard to get anything done. Also, very political. But if you're willing to play the game, it can be a good place to be.

Pros: constant change
Cons: constant change
They have their fingers into just about everything. It gives you the ability to try jobs in areas that you may have a great passion for. Great place for a first job. Teams are silod and used to work in isolation. There is a top down edict to change to become a single company. But, team vs. team was the culture before.

Terrible Manager Experience
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee), ColoradoDecember 14, 2014
Pros: pay, benefits, products.
Cons: incomplete training, unsocial co workers, inconsistent schedule.
When I was first hired on with Microsoft I was ecstatic! Once I was in my position for a few weeks it was a different story. The store manager is a terrible human being who is racist and loves to micro manage. The manager ruined my experience at Microsoft.

The company was fairly decent to work for. I was taken care of but Microsoft has so much going – more... that it takes away from the retail side of things.

If you have an opportunity to work for Microsoft take it. Just don't let your manager walk all over you. Most stores have great store manager. – less
