Does Microsoft have a pension plan?

Pros

It's an excellent company, with great grown-up perks (pension, health insurance and stock) and a lot of social and sports clubs. Great place to work if you know what you want, not so much if you're starting your career and are still not so sure. Excellent culture.

Cons

There is little 1:1 with HR. Salary reviews are not a thing unless you're a software engineer or sales, or God. No free food, not really. You don't get machine upgrades or to pick your laptop, and if you lose your mouse it's not uncommon to feel guilty for asking for a new one. Silly stuff, but the devil is in the peripherals.

Advice to Management

Don't be so cheap.

Does Microsoft offer a wellness program?

Pros

The benefits including wellness, insurance, discounts and support are unmatched. When doing anything outside of work, you can almost always find a way the company will support what you are doing. This also carries into being able to very much fully disconnect from work as soon as I'm away from the building.

Cons

In the retail space there is a lot of change in direction and focus. Expectations can be vastly different from month to month, sometimes with little relevance to the previous ones.
