If you can get in, its a great company to work for
Keep your resume updated at all times. You never know when you are going to need it.
I think you should have some marketing experience. It would help your interaction with your team

Productive and fun workplace
A fun place to work where you get benefits for 20+ hours a week. A non-pressure sales environment. It is more about letting the customers experience the product rather than sales

Very good workplace, with a secure salary, great leadership.
Working at Microsoft as an Intern is a rewarding experience. The leadership is great and encourages a lot of learning. If you keen on learning and have a growth mindset, this is the place for you.

nice place to work
the main disadvantage is no work life balance and the salaries distribution is unfair. in addition no stability at all. each year the company reorganization doesn't allow employees to set plan only for one year because the position might be closed suddenly.

Microsoft before was amazing but now i don't advice to go for it.

It’s Okay.
Microsoft is a great company to work for however, don’t be fooled by all the hype. I agree that it is a great opportunity to grow some skill sets but management is easy to forget us associates only work at a mall, not corporate. It is stressful to not only do your position but other roles for the same pay.
Pros

Cons
Micro managing, no work life balance, no set schedule

It is fun to be an employee of Microsoft
It is fun to be an employee of Microsoft. You do not have a strict protocol regarding the work environment. You can work from wherever you are comfortable with. You have a huge campus and a number of sports activities are conducted regularly.

Incredible company to work for in late 1980's to 2000's
Wonderful company, made you feel valued. Worked with incredibly smart, motivated people. We all felt we were changing the world (which I think we did)!

Don't believe the Hype
Highered as tech service's analyst. Was promised to have certs provided as part of highering. Then 3 months in, all certs were cancelled. I joined with the specific intent of getting a few more certs and while working in the store, i never got the opportunity and was denied on 3 separate occasions to take time off to do a course which would have helped with the job.

They pay on the 7th and 22nd and that screwed up all my bills which cost me about 300 dollars in NSF fees. When I complained, i got a written warning for my attitude. They don't care about their employees. As long as you are selling and up-selling. This is all they cared about.


I would avoid the company like the plague. Looks good on paper - working with the devil usually does

They encourage playing and knowing about XBox and games.
It is the most inclusive office Ive ever worked at. The work culture is great and the management is young so they hear you about your concerns. We had a weekly learning quota which was a brand new concept for me. Overall, I had a very wholesome experience at Microsoft.

Great company to work for; focused on growth of employees.
I would definitely recommend this place as it is focused on employee growth and well-being. It's hard to come across a company that is focused on well-being of their employees. There is lots of growth opportunity and opportunity to learn and grow skills.

Generally good.
Their management style is in transition from the Ballmer years to something more flexible/modern, but they have a ways to go. Overall a worthwhile experience, especially seeing Seattle and the surrounding area.
