Christian Long has an interesting post about a “small” e-printing company in Livingston, Montana that he met while at Scoble’s “Off the Grid”.Ã‚Â I’m jealous – I was supposed to be at that geek-fest, but a painting injury kept me from making the trip.
On site day care.Ã‚Â A “learning” environment.Ã‚Â One rule regarding dogs in the workplace – “No cats allowed”.Ã‚Â Yeah, it sounds like my kind of place!
Oh, and Scoble posted on this as well – the dog rule came from him!
We had a pretty cool working environment here for years – no set hours, dogs were fine… at one time we even had a margarita machine!
When people ask me why I don’t go back to work for a huge company, I think I’ll just point them at this post (and this one).
It’s not that I have anything against big business – I think they can be run in a manner that allows employees to be something more than “just a body in a cubicle”.Ã‚Â They just need to be creative – but even before that, they need to be willing to change!
