    And moving to the mailroom because the call center director overbooked the building and needs all the room he can get to add cubicles and squeeze people in.

    That is all.

    You'd think I had some control over it because, oh I dunno, I run the facilities dept and determine seating. He asked my boss though and he's the one who suggested the mail room. Got to try to find somewhere else but there honestly isn't much more space to choose from.

    The engineering office/workshop in the lower level might actually be better, I'm down there all the time anyway.

    Just snapped this with the ID card camera. I'm backed up against the opposite corner wall/door.

    It's not a private office, I'm in the middle seat out of 3. Two other facilities people sit on either side, but they were both just about to leave the company; I would have had it all to myself. :eek::mad:

    That is not an office. I've seen sweatshops that give their employees more workspace.

    You should see the 4ft x 4ft death traps we give the call center people. :ph34r:

    Once the other two folks left, I was going to have the dividers pulled to give me all that space. :(

    Leased, about 160,000GSF and we have the whole building but we're already packed in like sardines. Lease was just renewed, even in this market they couldn't find anything cheaper than staying put, after considering move costs and downtime.

    I'll go first. Just snapped this like 5 seconds ago.

    I'm planning on eventually switching desks for more deskspace, and yes it's a minor mess... better than it was last week though.
