Top 10 things…

that are awesome about working for a large corporation at headquarters:

10. Free mouthwash in the bathrooms…with little disposable cups.

9. Parking is never a problem.

8. Italian ice for afternoon snacks.

7. Free camp chairs with the company logo on them.

6. Grilled steak, hamburgers, and hot dogs when you have to work overtime on the weekend.

5. Office supplies whenever you need them (and no one complains about you needing office supplies!)

4. A cafeteria in the building, with a cook who knows that you can’t eat bread and leaves the bun off of your hamburger.

3. The coffee is already made when you get to work because there are 60 other sales reps who are more addicted than you are.

2. Almost getting run over by flatbed trucks on the way to & from the parking lot…every day. Woohoo adrenaline rush!

1. Having an ID badge with your name on it…and you actually look good in the picture.

  1. 10. No… no free mouthwash here, but we are permitted to bring a toothbrush and toothpaste.

    9. Parking is no longer a problem now that we have let 2/3 of our people go.

    8. Hmmm… we do have an ice machine in the breakroom, I guess we just have to be creative.

    7. We do get chairs so we don’t have to stand at our desks all day.

    6. We do get some free food if we have to work OT over the weekend, just not grilled steaks (that sounds nice).

    5. Office supplies rulez!

    4. There is a cafeteria in the next office building that we can order food without getting into trouble (having the chef remembering your food preferences is another issue).

    3. The coffee is usually ready if you get in at the right time, if not there are pretty signs everywhere to remind you to make some for yourself and others. 😛

    2. I can use that adrenaline rush! The walk from the parking lot to the office is pretty uneventful (unless you get in during trash day and you enjoy car alarms set off by the garbage truck).

    1. Yea, we do get ID badges with our mug shots on there, ain’t that cool? 😀

    So, Sholeh, any openings you can refer? 🙂

  2. haha that was great, David. This is not to say that I recommend working here, I’m just trying to be positive…
