Take a look at this short video, shot by drone, of my company’s new building. It’s a cool building in a great location!
And I can say that the views from the gym do make the workouts just a bit better.
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.
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.
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!
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.
And in case you’re wondering, Bruce seems to love his new spot on my desk.
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.
I introduced you to Bruce the day before yesterday. He’s the Beta fish I adopted from a colleague at work who left the company. I have no idea how Bruce felt about his old stomping ground, but I was not enamored with it. So off to PetSmart I went. I like his new home much better. Hopefully he does too. I know he doesn’t like the light on the tank because when it’s on he sits near the bottom. As soon as I turn it off he swims around. Right now he’s on the counter between my kitchen and dining room, but he’ll soon be on my desk at work, in our new building. What do you think of Bruce’s new digs?
I adopted Bruce today from a colleague who is no longer with my company. Apparently Bruce has gone through a few different owners in that manner. I will have to take him home since we are moving offices at the end of the week, but then I will take him back and give him a nice spot on my desk. Next to my plant. He’s a handsome boy, isn’t he?
