Working for Microsoft vs. Working for a Partner

By Domonic Lastoria on Dec 11, 2020 5:38:07 PM

It's hard to believe it has already been 3 months since I joined BEMO as our Customer Success Manager. Prior to joining the team, I worked for the tech giant that is Microsoft for nearly a decade! In my time with them, I wore many hats, including multiple interim Program Manager roles at HQ in Redmond, WA for both the Windows and Office 365 teams. My final role was special: Cloud Technical Expert. "Why was it so special?" you ask? Not only did I get the honor of being be one of the first people in the role, but I also helped to create it! I've been lucky to have a great career filled with different roles and settings so let me share the highlights and differences between working for a partner like BEMO versus working for Microsoft.

Customer Interviews, Phase I: We Asked, You Answered

By Julia Chester on Sep 25, 2020 6:24:09 PM

When I joined BEMO, six months ago now (!), I was curious about our customers. Working in Marketing, I spent very little time actually interacting with them, yet our blog, our vision, everything we do is meant to revolve around them. You see the disconnect, right? Certainly my comrades at BEMO could tell me about our customers and advise me, but talking about swimming and catapulting off the high dive are two different things. So, I dove right in.

Life After Microsoft: What It’s Like to Work For a Microsoft Partner

By Josh Franklin on Sep 4, 2020 11:19:48 AM

Three months ago, I transitioned from my job as a Cloud Technical Expert at Microsoft, into a role as a Cloud Solutions Specialist with BEMOGoing from one side of Microsoft cloud sales to the other has been a very interesting experience, enough so, that I thought it worth sharing. So, in this blog, I’ll compare the various aspects of working for a giant corporation versus working for a much smaller company, so that anyone (maybe you?) who is looking to make the same type of change has a better idea of what to expect.
