Maybe you can take the time and get some new certificates for online training.  You might as well take advantage of the time, you never know when that will change and you go.. was I ever not busy??? :-)

Just sharing, extra days off are the best! 

Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend, this one or last (which I believe was a UK bank holiday)

We have a few in our office that fit the taking advantage profile.  Unless asked, I just let them bury their own grave.  At some point someone will see what they are doing.   We have one person who spends more time smoking then working.  I can't believe management doesn't notice.  If I am asked by my boss, I would let him know exactly what is going on, but if not asked... this is one issue I won't volunteer.

We have people that work from home on a weekly basis.  Every Friday or a set day.  I am not eligible.   It is on a case by case decision and depends on a bunch of things.  Anyone who is expected to be on the phone is not really eligible.  Customer Service, the support staff,  accounting dept.  The people (lucky ones) are the programmers, writers, project oriented departments.  I think we all should be able to, but that is how it is.

I have 10 days off per year.  If I get sick, I have to use part of that.   My past job I had 2 weeks vacation and earned up to 5 sick days per year.

I wish I could, my little patch  of dirt (where I would love to plant tomatoes) doesn't get enough direct sun.   Sad!  I do have an indoor herb garden, my mint is super healthy this year!
7  General Discussion / Admins 4 Admins / Expense Reports on: April 15, 2016, 03:08:12 am
My company still does an old fashion expense report.  My boss brings me his receipts, I tape them on a sheet of paper and log them into a form.   I would love to know if this is normal or has expense reports moved into the technology age?
8  General Discussion / Help...Specifically / Org Chart Software on: March 25, 2016, 04:08:29 am
Hi everyone! 

I have always used PowerPoint to make my org charts.  I have come to the point where the chart is too big and too complicated.   What software or programs does everyone use.. and how do you like it?  I need one where it is easy to change groups up and down hiring levels.

Any suggestions?

I am going to disagree with the majority... just kidding!  I would not share what I earned the right to get, each person should get a fair share and what they deserve.  If a person did better than me, so be it they get their raise, I wouldnt expect them to give up some of theirs for me!
10  General Discussion / Help...Specifically / Re: How do you handle your Executive's email? on: February 20, 2016, 10:12:52 pm
I have access but it is somewhat limited.  Well, I only clean up the obvious junk.  My boss loves her shopping email for certain stores, so I do put those in folders.   I would love to actually organize her emails, but that wouldn't work for her, so I just try to keep it clean from junk.  It does help though.
11  General Discussion / Admins 4 Admins / Back From Vacation - Emails on: December 29, 2015, 06:31:45 am
I took 3 days off last week and though it was a slow week, came back to 243 emails!  Out of those emails, 54 were junk or non  work related.   The first half of today was simply catching up after three slow days!   I just wanted to throw out.. when you come back from a vacation or holiday how many emails do you get?  (guesstimate!)

Too bad I didn't post one.  It would have been nice to say.. I did it!

Hawaii.. you can have meetings and have great offsite events.
14  General Discussion / Admins 4 Admins / Power Point Presentations on: October 19, 2015, 03:32:52 am
I have been doing Powerpoint presentations for years.  I feel burnt out on my creativeness.  So, I ask..  In your opinion, what makes a really cool presentation?   (Other than content, content is king, but I am not in charge of that.. I create with what I get)..

Background?  Transitions?  Multimedia embedded?   

What about new software such as Prezi?

Wish I had some advice.  Time to look for a new job.
