This place is a lot looser than my last station. When you're owned by a giant lightbulb company, as the last one was, things tend to be more codified and less is left to chance (that's their intent anyway...). I'm not sure what to make of my new company as a company just yet. I did learn today that there is also a tradition of ice cream on Fridays in the summer. I wonder what the holiday parties are like?
I have now become a pod person. Worse, I have to share a work area (all very nice people that I share with, but nothing beats your own space to spread your stuff out on). I miss my desk and the modicum of privacy that my cubicle afforded me.
