Things you actually like about the modern workplace


#1

When you’re in a shared spreadsheet and it becomes a chatroom

think that’s it?


#2

All fun and games until Tim from accounts puts on his robe and wizard hat


#3

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


#4

N/A


#5

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

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


#6

All the coffee I can drink.


#7

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


#8

This really, really isn’t a word.


#9

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


#10

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


#11

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


#12

Smoking rooms were really bad too.


#13

Is it?


#14

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?


#15

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.


#16

The speed of computers.
Multiple flat-screen monitors
Internet access
(slightly) more flexible working hours
No need to wear a tie


#17

Huh?


#18

I wish it was at my place!


#19

workplace equality being more of a thing


#20

so people just start chatting shit in the cells?
like someone said they were wasted in their job after automating something
and I got to change it to they were wasting their job for maximum bants
