Campaign time!!!!


Campaign time....that is, my campaign to convince the powers that be at work to let me work out of the office in Roseville. It's not going to be an easy task, but I am arming myself with all kinds good, persuasive arguments. I even called the Branch Admin manager up there today (on the sly) and asked her about available office space. She was giddy just thinking about having an onsite compliance consultant and said that she would look into it for me!

Ironically, I don't think it will be my bitchy boss who will have a problem with it. It's HER boss who is the real control freak...I swear that woman doesn't even speak to me and my colleagues, but she does sit in her office and watch our every move. It is sooooo insulting! Anyways....the argument that everyone in the compliance group should be in the San Francisco office no longer holds any water for me. Recently, one of our regulatory consultants was allowed to move to Denver--just because she wanted to. And her job actually demands that she be in physically in San Francisco because the regulators with who she interacts sure as shit ain't gonna fly to Denver to meet her there! I cringe at the thought of how much we pay out to fly back and forth every other week and stay at the Omni Hotel for 2-3 days!!! We also have people in Scottsdale...someone still in San Antonio...and other small groups around the country. And another thing....two of my direct colleagues were originally told that they were not allowed to telecommute and both of them work from home 2 days a week now.

I'm not asking them to pay for my relocation (I gotta move anyways!), or give me a raise...and I would be more than happy to drive to SF several times a month and NOT incur the cost of staying at one of the most expensive hotels in the city! All the work I do is by computer, phone and fax....sooooooo...why not let me MOVE?!?!

Were you able to convince them to let you move to the Roseville office or telecommute?
