I remember when I was first hired at my company everything was much more relaxed. I work for a small time animation studio. We started out in a miniscule office and worked together. Everyone worked at a picnic table, ate our meals together, and left the building as a team. Then business started booming and our places expanded. It went from one office to an entire building of employees. We went from wearing sandals and tie dyes to suits and dress shoes. We were no longer the hip kids but the older adults in charge. With the new building there can be a lot more changes too. The world is a much more violent place and security is always a concern. We now have video surveillance in every office and outside of the building. The security control is insane. There are also HID readers in order to get into the building. I need to make sure to bring my card, swipe it, know my code, and then I can get into the facility. There are also codes I can type in at my desk that alert the police, fire department, or call the business owner. It is awesome and yet sad. I like that we are more safe and secure. I don’t like that it is a requirement nwo. Something has changed about the atmosphere. We feel like less of a family working unit and instead like a real company. Our products are still good but I miss the days of that tiny cramped office. I never used to think about keyless entry and integrated building installation.
