ExtraTeam's Microsoft practice, I'm fortunate to work in a tight group of really smart people. Our staff has credentials that rival only a very few very large consulting companies. This makes our collaborative work environment über cool without any pretentiousness or rivalry. In today's business climate, that's a real differentiator.
My manager, Mike Sneeringer, is one of those rare double Microsoft Certified Masters - He's an MCM in both Exchange and OCS. Keif Machado is an Exchange MCM and Tom Pacyk just became a Lync Server MCM this morning! Together, we're certified on nearly two dozen Microsoft technologies and have numerous professional certifications including MCITPs, TS's, MVP, MCSE, MCSA, and CISSP. That doesn't even count all the smart folks on the Cisco side of the business.
I've entered into the Exchange MCM application process this week, myself, and plan to blog about the experience as it goes. Wish me luck!
