Went to see the new building I will be moving into soon
Pros and cons time
Flagship building for the company, many fancies
half the distance and traffic of my commute
Covered parking that fits my cruiser WITH the roof rack on.
No more parking space fights with crappy pizza place
No more homeless people sleeping in front of the door or throwing up in the bushes outside my window
fancy new desks
Long walks to and from parking
Open plan workspace - boo.
building full of C level leaders and hungry go getters means the casual dress code goes bye bye
Colorful coworker batner likewise goes bye bye
No new eatery options...exactly the same stuff I have now
one single stall bathroom for about 75 people. Why would they do that?
did I mention how much I hate open plan workspaces? I do.
All-in-all it will be a good move. The commute cut alone is going to be great.
