It’s May again, which means I’ve reached another anniversary at Microsoft. I’ve been working here for 17 years and I’m still having a great time! Two years ago, I explained some of the skills I’ve gained and roles I’ve had after 15 years at Microsoft. As my resumé/CV shows, I’ve been in a global sales role (Global Account Programs) for the past year and I’ll soon be moving into a global marketing role. However, I thought I would take this time to share some of the interesting things I’ve done in the last 17 years while at Microsoft. My “about” page gives a good narrative of my history here too, but here are ten fun trivia items I try to bring up when explaining my experiences:
I continue to meet creative, smart, fun, and interesting people all around the world working at, and with, Microsoft. Unfortunately I don't have time to connect with them as often as I would like to, since they span from different areas of the US to Denmark to Japan to Turkey to England to Belgium and other fun places in the world.
I now document those personal adventures at http://grothadventures.wordpress.com/ and my advertising/marketing thoughts at http://briangroth.wordpress.com/ with only the occasional Microsoft-specific topics at this blog (http://blogs.msdn.com/bgroth/)
