Well, almost. As you can imagine getting everything up and running and in the right places in such a big place can take a bit of time. But we’re mostly up and running and what a cool place it is! Each floor has a color and my floor is orange. You can click on a picture to enlarge it.
This is my new floor. I used to sit on 14 in the old building. Now I’m on lucky 13!
We have moved from cubicles with high walls to benched seating. Some people are not happy about that, but we’ve been told we’ll get used to it and love it. I’m keeping an open mind.
This is one small corner of my floor. It’s much bigger than you can see here. And notice all the boxes to the right?
The views from every side of the building are fantastic. All the outer walls are nothing but glass. It’s vertigo inducing when you stand right next to the glass and look straight down!
This is the view from my floor looking north.
This is the view looking east.
This is the view looking south at the Dallas skyline.
We have a state of the art gym on the 18th floor. It has everything! There are spin bikes, weight machines, free weights, treadmills, ellipticals, a yoga room and more. There are separate showers and dressing rooms for men and women.
This is one section of the gym.
And in case you’re wondering, Bruce seems to love his new spot on my desk.
Bruce says hello!
I’m sure before too long the newness will have worn off and everything will be old hat, but for the time being I can’t stop looking. I keep wandering to different floors to check everything out. I love our new building, mostly because it is so open and airy! Has anybody else worked in a benching or open seating environment? If so, how did you like it? Let me know in the comments.
