Big Companies

There are advantages to working for a big company.

I’m working in Ottawa this week. About a quarter of a floor here is space for “mobile workers”; people who are out in the field most of the time, and so don’t have a dedicated office. But they’re available to any employee who needs a desk and a network connection away from home. They have (direct dial!) telephones, printers, and even coffee!

In the Baltimore days I would have had to find a Second Cup or Starbucks with wireless internet access, and work over our (relatively primitive) VPN service. Now I just show up, flash my badge, grab a desk, and I’m on the corporate network.

(I think I accidentally swiped someone else’s “normal” desk, though :-)
