Featured Review

Former Employee - Consumer Product Advisor

I worked at Microsoft part-time for less than a year

Pros

-store managers care about their employees, customers, and company image. They look after their employees and what’s best for them, and not just restricted to company-related issues. They really... develop their community. -Fantastic benefits and bonuses through microsoft -State of the art tech and laptops on display in the stores -Great service bar with knowledgeable staff -Great product advisors with knowledge of the current market -Most of the team is willing to teach, share knowledge, and get new employees up to speed fast.

Cons

-Some managers are clearly placed through nepotism/politics (like most of retail) and don’t do a great job, but the heart is still there. -“big company” politics are still very much front and center..., sometimes the managers can only do so much to support the store and their team without being overruled by corporate. -The best of the best of...a retail job.

Advice to Management

-Keep up the heart and care for the employees and the community. They’ll remember it and give back where they can. You are creating an experience that is hard to forget. -You really really don’t... need an employee to verbally greet every customer who enters the store. A visual nod and smile/grimace will do.

Former Employee - Software Engineer

I worked at Facebook full-time for less than a year

Pros

Good people who seem to care.

Cons

They need to offer better training to grow people. Sometimes you can feel forgotten, and things feel a bit rushed.
