No smoking. Surprised I didn’t get lung disease when I think about it

Can work from home most of the time without it being an issue.

Obviously doesn’t apply to places with awful presenteeism cultures.

All the coffee I can drink.

Yeah. I remember sitting next to my boss at my first job and he smoked at his desk all day.

This really, really isn’t a word.

Can’t even imagine how bad smoke-filled offices would have been.

That whole working-long-hours-and-every-weekend-bravado thing seems to be dying a death.

Think a lot of studies point out working from home leads to quicker and better quality work
But it increases anxiety because everyone’s afraid everyone in the office thinks they’re slacking

Smoking rooms were really bad too.

Is it?

Particular to my workplace:

Free tea and coffee.

Very decent and cheap lunch options in the cafe.

Colleagues are pretty great.

But generally: it’s all a load of shit int it?

I get to sit down all day, in a comfortably heated room, with internet access and free tea and coffee.

Absolutely spot on if you ask me.
