You forget how good you can make your own office space:
Desk for a shorter person, i.e. too low and not adjustable.
chair shit and too low
keyboard Aussie (okay, that was always a given)
no stand for my laptop
had to bring a cable that converted DVI to HDMI for my laptop’s HDMI port (at least I remembered this)
Monitor at the desk is total shit. I mean it looks like it should be good but it is making all my emails look like they’re running through some kind of pixelator and this is the digital input. Holy moly.
Currently sitting on a ream of paper on top of the chair in order to raise myself up a bit.
Yeah our company has always banged on about ergonomics but no one ever does anything. In the office it’s always been bad because obviously actually providing desks that move up and down and monitors that aren’t absolute arse costs money
I use my laptop keyboard even when I’m in the office as I find it far more comfortable than desktop ones. Had no mouse for a couple of months recently which was a ballache though, luckily I don’t do much work
Everyone’s whose come back to the office has demanded a desk assesment because people realise how uncomfortable and awfully configured our desks are. For starters I’m too tall for the desk. Period. There os no way it can be configured to suit my needs do I need to have my chair too low. My colleague who is barely 5 foot needs monitor risers ffs
The person who designed that office is an idiot and if I ever see her again I’d yell at her for doing such a piss poor job and deciding we didn’t need air con because we had windows on 2 sides of the office when its a room with 50 computers running in it
