I’ve probably written this post before, but I felt the urge to gush. I am so lucky. Granted I picked a really good field to go into, but still, I have THE best job. You know you have good work/life balance when you look forward to going into the office in the morning and look forward to coming home in the evening.
Of course, the number one thing is I get to work from home three days a week and spend more time with my Owen <3
Being able to pump in my office is also a big help as I need to pump four times a day and that would be quite a pain to be going off to some room somewhere that often.
Flex hours. No one really cares when I start/end as long it more or less 8 hours a day, 40 hours a week.
The people. I don’t have anything bad to say about anyone that works here. They’re great people and I really enjoy working with them. I’ve said it before, but this is really the first place I’ve ever felt like I fit in.
The work, OK, it’s not that interesting or challenging, but it’s interesting enough and challenging enough for where I am in life (and that’s spending every ounce of free time with the baby). I also really enjoy things like our yearly hackathon (that we didn’t win again, but still, it was a lot of fun).
Training. They give us plenty of time and plenty of courses so we’re never falling too far behind.
Discounts. We get 50% off our cell service and now we get free TV! Bryan and I are so excited, ha ha. Not that we have time to watch TV, but the option will be there.
Oh yeah, it pays the bills. Really, they pay me to do this? OK, so I wouldn’t do it for free, or probably even less than I get since I’m the only one working, but we’re blissfully comfortable and that’s awesome.
Sure things get stressful once in a while and I spend all day working on a problem only to realize I was writing “get” instead of “post,” and our health insurance is meh, but I love this place.
