How hard is it to make it past the new 2 year probationary
period?  How many people have to quit before they
get fired?  How many of you have to work on nights and
weekends, and until what time into the night?  Basically
how many hours per week to get the job done?

Hi. This is a great thread - many thanks to those who have patiently answered questions over the months and years.  
 
It seems that the key to getting hired is to catch the interest of a SPE. I am a computer science generalist, and I would like  to know if there are particular topics to bring up - perhaps areas with huge backlogs - that would be more likely to result in an eventual hire.  
 
I would also like to know if hiring is affected by the end of the FY.  
 
TIA from another pto wannabe

Hi, I have a couple of general questions for people who attend the Patent Academy training program.  What's the schedule like?  Also, what's the dress code?  Does everyone dress up in suits or business casual?  Thanks.

Anyone has master degree and willing to take the grade 7 option 10, which is the same salary as the people who has a BS degree. Do you think the people who get master degree will promote faster than those don't have master degree? What is the advantage?They told to take this option if do not want so much stress in the beginning.
