Strange coincidence - 2 yrs completion and I get a box !!
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...
