    I have been working at Microsoft for less than a year

    Pros

    The culture is a pretty inviting one. There are monthly employee events to boost morale. Plus, you get free drinks and snacks which is unheard of at the retail level. The health and dental benefits package is a pretty good one which also includes a fitness reimbursement for things like a gym membership or gym equipment.

    Cons

    Fellow coworkers are pretty cool but there is a tendency to hire really young staff who either don't care about the job or don't really know much about technology. Not much room for growth. Staff discounts are horrible. Same as the education discount given to students. Work/Life balance sucks but that's just like any other retail position.

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

    Pros

    The management picked a really supportive team and they themselves were really supportive and forgiving when I made early mistakes. I really thought I was going to get fired in my first month. But instead they gave me a lot of leeway, kept pairing me up with other successful sales people and kept checking up with me after every interaction I made to give me advice on what I could do better. I came to love the job and put a lot of effort into becoming a better sales person. It was really rewarding for me, and I'm sure them as well, to be able to see my sales increasing.

    Cons

    Dancing was the worst part. It should have been written into the job description when one applies because it became a big part. Everyone was expected to do so at least once each day.
