Default Had my first onsite with my new employer...

Very much startup mentality, and I enjoyed it very much. Happy to make the wages they pay me, and the added benefit of being in Atlanta so I can spend time with my daughter.

Original plan was to drive back home Sunday, but now they want me here Monday with our Atlanta client, so I'm not leaving, will get all Sat/Sun with G, and then stay near her for the Monday meeting.

The office is basically a big room with tables where we all sit, but there is a conference room , and 1 or 2 offices, but everyone sits in the big room.

Quite a departure from mama "cyan".

That's our setup in my office. No more cubicles. Open plan so we can be more collaborative and creative to bring on clients.... however when we are all on the phone it is loud. Can be hard to talk on the phone.

Thus my point above. War rooms are great for collaboration and exchange of ideas. But it can be difficult to get any real work done.

I remember back in HS a buddy and I went down to State Dept. building in an area of DC known as Foggy Bottom, part of the swamp.....his mother worked there and had her own office....with window and in the center of that floor was this desk farm and no partitions, I had never seen something like that before, and so I was shocked that when we got back from lunch, all the heads were just standing around visiting and talking near the water/coffee machines.....like they doing nothing all day.....
went there another time, same story......this was way the hell up in the air, like 8th? floor something.....wasn't even any security/guards/anything....

today I bet FPS has it locked down like an Egyptian tomb.....

I was in Alpharetta for the past 3 nights, and am now in a hotel on the Georgia Tech campus until Tuesday morning.
