How monitored are you whilst at work?

There appears to be no checking of what we’re up to online. No swiping in or out. Some CCTV in the foyer but that’s about it, I think.

Some interesting developments in the links below.

Seems unusually evil for amazon!


You don’t “win” patents ffs. I don’t sit here all day playing a patent lottery and hoping to win prizes.

To answer your question: barely monitored. I don’t care that much because I get my work done, and it’s definitely been a blessing in some respects, but on the other hand it means there’s no requirement for my colleagues to be diligent or competent and I get annoyed with the issues that causes me.

CCTV in the foyer, have to swipe into our office but that’s about it. No-one seems to give a shit as to what I do online and I take as many breaks as I want without anyone caring. Pretty relaxed all round.

My team has had it pretty easy but we have a new boss as of this week so that will change. Other teams are plagued by narc managers who monitor everything. No one looks at our internet usage or whatever (so far as I know).

See me in my office.
