As inspired by this "Ask an Engineer"...
Does your office ROCK? Wanna show it off? Or does it suck and you want to commiserate? Post the view from your cube (or non-cube/worksite/research lab, if that is the case)!
I'll start... as I mentioned in the blog I totally work in a "cube farm"... but a nice one!
Here is my cube
I somehow snagged one of the larger cubes (muahaha) but no windows :( Very low walls so you can stand up and have a 'gopher' conversation, which makes it a bit more social and open seeming but you have to be very careful about how loud your conversations/calls are. I have three walls, the one not pictured is shelving and a cabinet with a whiteboard thingy.
Here is the floor (13th floor), as you can see it's just a lot of cubes for most of the floor!
Here is "the bistro" - informal sitting/eating area. Nice view of the mountains, city in the distance. Comfy chairs, a plant, a little TV that we use to watch the world cup :P. Communal fridge, coffee machine, blah blah blah
This is what "passive aggressive notes" look like in the green economy... I call this 'greenier than thou'.
Some of our recycle bins, one of our green initiatives. They are quite nice! We also have one specifically for recycling the 1L milk cartons they bring in for coffee (they previously had the little single-serve cups -- lots of waste!). Employees are encouraged to bring their own reuseable dishes and cutlery, so there is a sink to wash that. There is a filtered water spout instead of water bottles/water cooler, and there are jugs to bring to meetings instead of providing bottled water.
The view from one of our decks, there are... uh... three decks on the floor? Maybe four? They are pretty big, but they don't get used much because it's raining all the dang time! I go out there to "stretch my eyes".
So anyway, that is my cube-land-home. I really like it!
Where do YOU work? :)
