Things I love about my Job

Great thing about working independently #412:

Having NSFW conversations on msn between phone calls.

    Heh, the bar of “NSFW” has been rising so high at work that you’d have to actively try to get in trouble.

    Example 1: on the internal IRC channel, there’s a channel called #substanceabuse

    Example 2: The company photo-scavenger hunt (done in-office on a Wednesday) was preceeded by a kegger. It included photos like “your team with 10 bongs in the background” and “your team in a porn store”.

    Example 3: One of the senior developers bought and brought in a cockbong (a bong shaped like a huge cock) and had it on a desk for a few days, as we had a running joke going about it.

    Of course, having worked in a job where everything was strictly monitored, I can understand the freedom that a little msn’ing can bring.

    Oh, and I have to quote one of our HR people:

    “We’d rather be a really fun place to work and potentially face a lawsuit than be a stuffy, boring place. Besides, we have great lawyers.”

    the last place I worked at was a locked down corporate sweatshop. So I’m pretty pleased to be somewhere with a lot more fun and freedom 🙂
