Yesterday I completed exactly 2 years at MS :-)…and co-incidentally got the VS 2005 box as a souvenier which has almost everything in it including VSTS suite (the product that I worked for right from day 1 at MS and which I am seeing ship now !) – well..technically I need to wait for TFS to RTM to feel realllyyyy proud and nice but heck thats just round the corner !!!!!!!!!!!!!
So now with 2 years gone – I am actually looking forward to completing 5 years @MS. Well there are a bunch of benefits that you get if you complete 5 years (especially in the India Dev Center)..
– You get an office (yes the lesser mortals sit in cubicles here)
– You get a nice fancy shield for completing 5 years
– You get a card signed by BillG (no I dont think he signs it himself 🙁 )
– And you get a nice sticker which says ‘Ask me for how long have I been here’ …just makes people walking by think that you are a fairly senior person 😉
BTW if you want to take a look at the contents of the ‘box’ – the cool posters and what not – take a look at abhinab’s blog…
