    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are many advantages to working at Microsoft. The culture is all about learning, growing and working together to deliver the company's mission. Microsoft has many employee advantages. Microsoft allows international internal transfers. CEO listens to people during an internal Q&A every month.

    Cons

    Because it's a large organization it can get confusing on who to contact whenever an issue arises and requires a different team to help out. There are a lot of things to retain and remember in terms of policy, organizational structure, who's who.

    Advice to Management

    The Senior Leadership team is doing a great job. While Microsoft isn't perfect. They listen to feedback and concerns of employees whenever an issue comes up.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Benefits are amazing - Plenty of opportunity to branch out and learn about other areas/get involved with other aspects of the store or company as a whole. - Company listens to feedback and creates growth opportunities to other areas of the company - VERY LGBTQ+ Friendly and accepting atmosphere - Company actually cares about community involvement and encourages employees to take part.

    Cons

    - Hourly rate could be better for Inventory related positions. They are paid the same as sales staff. - Not a whole lot of room for growth unless you are in certain fields, or are willing to move to the United States

    Advice to Management

    - Create more opportunities for Canadian employees. We are an increasingly growing market and there is not enough opportunities for the talent pool that is here.

    Pros

    Excellent opportunities in all areas of the company. Employees genuinely want to help you succeed. You will learn so much.

    Super fast-paced. If you are not on the ball 100% of the time, you will miss something. Pay is average or slightly below if you compare to other tech internships.
