Do you love your company?

Post by Unvoiced_Apollo » Wed Oct 5, 9:56 2016

My job, not so much (but someone has to do it).

But I like the company & my coworkers so it makes my job bearable.

And my company just proved how awesome it was with its open house. The catering was top notch with the food. It was pretty much a buffet of hor d'oeuvres. My favorites were the goat cheese & pear tart and the mini jumbo lump crabcake (more crab than cake) with lemon aioli, and the mini tiramisu complete with a chocolated coated espresso bean. All the food was good though.

The best part however was that they had an open bar! I'm not a big drinker, but that was the first open bar I experienced so I had to get one drink of free booze XD!

Great people & they know how to party!

I am enjoying the company I now work for. It is a very large company, too (here's a hint: we sell stuff).
It's a big world, and it never stays the same.

I love the people I work for, but the work and hours really sucks. I've stayed way longer then I should have just because it was under table cash and cool people.
Where there's smoke, there's fire. Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it doesn't exist. So just shut up, and bring some water.

My company isn't bad. I struggle with dealing with some of the people sometimes though.

I like the company well enough. More often I've worked in mom&pop shops, this is the first time I've worked in a bigger organisation. It's weird to actually be able to move up and get raises and stuff. It's like I'm an adult.

I work for a very, very large telecommunications company that is trying to rebrand itself as an entertainment company, and this company is pretty fabuloys to work for. Plus, I have one of the best supervisors I've ever had.

I'm a tech support specialist, so my job can be challenging, but the company I work for makes it worth while.

My company is ok, they really do try to help people so that's quite impressive. Working there is rather annoying, they're 'not a software development house' so ignore all best practice and expert advice, which is challenging for the software developers. My coworkers are awesome though.
