I start early in the morning. We have standup around 10-11. Most of my MS interactions is between 12 and 5. Very easygoing culture. Management was very responsive.

not typical retail job, always learning and managers are always pushing for growth. Have quarterly reflections to review your impact and progress. regardless of work ethic they hardly ever fire unless under excruciating circumstances.

I worked at a Technical lead at Microsoft and can say that if you want to learn anything related to technology this is a great place to work .
Daily new challenges which will have something to learn about.

Work culture of the company is great mostly. However it depends on your department if they behave differently.

Cons: Compensation benefits can be provided more as compared to other tech giants.

Some toxic managers who will pull you down but the overall HR is strong enough for you to stand for yourself and its not difficult to go to HR if you are right.
Pros
You can work at your will, Sense of work Culture is great, Strong POSH, Approachable HR
Cons
Cons: Compensation benefit, Some toxic managers who

At Microsoft, you get to work with a lot of brilliant minds and with products that everyone has heard of. A lot of the tech stack is microsoft specific but they did a good job. Sometimes there is office politics but it's not as common to deal with engineering.
Pros
Great campus, great people, big impact, benefits
Cons
Constanlty changing vision

I worked in the retail stores before they closed. Amazing benefits and truly enjoyed working there! I ultimately ended up leaving because of lack of direction with the company for retail employees specifically.
Pros
Pay, free health insurance, tuition reimbursement, personal development classes
Cons
Have to drink the koolaid, can be very cultish and dismissive to any feedback to improve

Very cut throat environment, watch your back. Salaries are appropriate for level and stock options are exceptional. Growth opportunities are limited in senior roles and everyone is expendable.
Pros
Great pay and benefits
Cons
Zero job security after age 40

Job security and advancement
In terms of job security at Microsoft, I’ve always felt secure in my employment. It’s been relatively easy to switch between groups and I have relocated by choice across the country twice to a different office on Microsoft’s dime. I have changed between engineering disciplines as well. Although I do feel changing disciplines slows your advancement through the promotion levels.
