My First Month at Microsoft




I didn't have this verbatim conversation per se – but it aptly captures the work intensity here at Microsoft.

Somehow I made it through the gauntlet of interviews and Microsoft decided to hire me. Yea, I don’t believe it either. Even after a month, it still feels a little unreal each morning when I swipe my badge – I keep waiting for the light to turn red and for someone to come out and say this has all been a big mistake and that they’ll have to take my badge….But so far it hasn’t happened.

Graduation is a happy day for everyone. My daughter's reaction was to ask "why are you wearing a dress daddy?"

A little over one year ago, I finished up my final coursework for my MBA from Babson College. The program I completed was the Fast Track MBA. For two years, I was part of a cohort of 88 classmates who met face-to-face every six weeks on Fridays and Saturdays, while also completing weekly assignments, discussions and attending lectures online. On average I spent about 20 hours a week studying and fulfilling the requirements for the Babson Fast Track MBA, while continuing to spend my normal 50+ plus hours a week working full-time.
