I came in to work today to find out that my company has been bought by Microsoft. Holy crap!

This should be a good thing for me overall. I’ll get a decent cash payout on my Danger stock, plus a good retention bonus since I’ve been at Danger for 7.5 years. The benefits package at MSFT is much better, including 401K matching and 100% health coverage.

Most importantly, program managers (what I do) are very well-respected at MSFT and I think it will be good for my career overall. One woman who talked to us today was a program manager and is now a general manager of the entire entertainment and mobile communications division at MSFT.

But yeah, I work for Microsoft now. Or, I will in ~30 days.

I’ve been assured that this won’t impact my vacation plans this summer.
