I have been working at Microsoft full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Pros

    Creativity, the amazing people; The fact that you can have a vision, prove it works and then create a team to deliver it!

    Cons

    Senior Management out of touch, rating system means people compete with others instead of focusing on being an R & D success!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ditch the current Appraisal rating process; focus on new development and creativity; stop chasing other markets inventions AFTER they have launched.....
