I love that it's walking distance to everything... I love the free water cooler (my last workplace had a water club! Can you believe it?)...I love the fresh flowers I put in a vase on my shelf...I love what I do. :0)

New office; fewer hotties. So I need a new best thing. Gotta be my coworkers - it's a hard job and we support each other.

1. The pay cheque
2. Being able to work remotely (aka from home)
3. Being in the City for food, drinks, talent spotting etc
4. Flexible working hours

The physical office itself is terrible - it was rented to create swing space to do a restack of the main office three doors down but when they realised the new design didnt create enough space for the planned expansion a few teams that act independently got stuck in the office and have been here for a few years now.

1. Decent Pay
2. Get to surf the net all day
3. Low accountability
4. Can be late every day and still get a 10% raise and a 95 on my review for attendance
5. Laid back. SUPER laid back. Can wear jeans every day. The president sits in his office and curses all day. (It's the oilfield. They are WORSE than sailors!)
6. Super awesome boss.
7. Flexible for all my appointments and my DD's - plus I can work from home if she is sick.
8. New building (4 years old)
9. Company iPhone
10. Company Laptop

There is the drama, the stupidity, the irrationality and frustration of working for a 5 year old company, but honestly the pros outweigh the cons. I'm very lucky.

The best thing in my current office is the wireless keyboard.

I don't understand how they spend thousands and I mean thousands, on the office furniture and its not heaven on earth comfortable

the ability to move my keyboard wherever around my desk is nice though, even tho it cost probably only 40-80$, I'll take that over the marble desk, floor or the chair any day.
