Wow, it's been a month. Sorry for not posting recently, I was on vacation in Oregon for part of the time. There's a lot I want to blog about. So I'll be taking some time out today to compose several posts and schedule them to go out.
Work/Life balance is pretty important at Microsoft. Managers schedule morale events for the team, the group has morale events, the division has holiday parties, and you get a fair amount of vacation time. It's not like Europe, or so I hear. But it's pretty good from a USA perspective.
