I am very pleased with my job. I work reasonable amount of time, get paid really well, and have a fantastic benefits package. I enjoy being around my coworkers, and am counted lucky to have my own office, which includes a fantastic view, comfortable chair, and a private bathroom. My only complaint is the temperature of the building. Although there’s a thermostat located in my office, I do not have access to change the settings. The temperature in the building is monitored and adjusted from a remote location. No one inside the building has access to the heating or cooling settings. The building is normally far too cold, especially through the summer months. Although the temperature outside is hot and moist, I spend the day bundled up in heavy sweaters, shivering. I wish that I could open the windows and let in some fresh, warm air. Every lunch hour, I often go for walks outside to warm up. It feels wonderful to be in the heat, soaking up the warm sunshine. However, I hate stepping back inside my freezing cold building with that air conditioner blasting at maximum speeds. I’ve tried moving my table to different locations, trying to escape the the overhead HVAC vents, but it doesn’t matter where my chair is. There isn’t an escape. I look forward to every fall season, because I usually enjoy a day or two before the heating system kicks on. At that point, I swap from shivering to sweating. In the middle of January, when it’s snowing outside the house, I strip down to summer attire at work.
