I’m No Longer Disoriented

Posted: May 25, 2005 in Uncategorized

Went through MSFT new employee orientation. 

Was a bit jaded walking in (I’ve been through a few of these before)… but was blown away at how good it was.

Man, does MSFT do this right.

Not just the presentation, but how easy and comprehensive everything was, including the self-service app — no wonder everyone says MSFT has the best benefits in the biz.

Here’s another observation:

Was in a room full of psyched people.  The MSFT HR people were psyched.  The new hires were psyched.  Heck, even the security people were psyched.

You expect everyone to be professional and reasonably happy… but I wasn’t prepared for — but was pleasantly surprised by — the enthusiasm. 

It was kinda infectious, even got a jaded old guy like me smiling.
