There is a certain irony to having Labor Day be your official "last day" with a company.
For the last 5+ years, I have been working directly for Microsoft, in the Services group doing consulting for a huge variety of organizations. Starting tomorrow, I'll be back to free-lance consulting. I've already got my first engagement lined up, so the world isn't coming to an end, but it certainly is changing. I won't deny that I'll miss the stability that comes with being a full-time "permanent" employee. I truly enjoyed my time at Microsoft, and I send my best wishes to all of the friends I made along the way.

In the meantime, I find myself excited anew by the prospect of freedom and variety the "Gig Economy" offers.
