1. I have 10 days of PTO in addition to 7 paid holidays. Much better than I was expecting for a contract position.
2. If I want, I can bring a laptop into Endeavor and work there if I don't want to work at my job. Huh? Ok.
3. Usually, they give their employees a laptop for the vendor work. However, my particular job, MS is going to be providing everything for me. That's not the norm for vendor work at MS. It might be due to the interesting nature of the R&D work.
4. Finally, my medical benefits start immediately. 401K and Disability start in 90 days. I was surprised. I don't have to cancel my doctor's appointment for mid-May.
Meeting cmpriest: Postponed until Sunday due to her lovely hubby getting a spectacular job at Amazon! Woot and Congrats!
Valve Software Tour: craigp, I think you would really like it. Very collaborative. Neat set up. Small company feel. GORGEOUS work space. Plus, I got to watch Ron play "Half Life 2: Episode 1" and it was very keen.
