Critical things to do after leaving:
Exercise your body -
Convert your ProClub membership!
The ProClub wastes no time and will
terminate you the moment Microsoft informs them you left. Your membership
won't even last to the end of the month. This isn't actually a problem since
you can convert it later but it is embarrassing when the alarms go off at
the door! It will cost $200 to convert to a prime-time membership within
of leaving Microsoft (won't
cost anything if you are willing to only go non-prime time (before 3:00PM))
and $114 a month. You will get $100 of the transfer fee refunded when you
get your MSA number (see below).
- Exercise those stock options - you have
90 days (calendar days, not
business days) and your stock options expire if you don't exercise them first!
- Sign up for COBRA if you are taking time off (or looking for a job) - Once you have signed up for COBRA pay your bills promptly: Aetna would like nothing
better than to cancel your coverage and they will it has happened to other
exMicrosofties while they were away traveling!
