I don't know what the male:female ratio is in VSCore, but I assume it's pretty close to the company average, which is 75/25 male/female (http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/inside_ms.asp).


Personally, I work 50 +/- 10 hours per week. I can't speak for the rest of the VSCore team, but I think that's predominantly true. I usually work 9-10 hours / weekday, and then I'll spend a couple hours Saturday and Sunday keeping up on email and taking care of any issues that fell off my plate during the week. Some weeks I'll work less. It depends on what else I have going on on a day-to-day basis. My girlfriend is moving back to Seattle in early June (she's finishing up her English degree at present), and that will undoubtedly require me to re-evaluate when and where I work.
