GD started blocking access to webmail today. *sigh* One more sign that I'm making the right decision by leaving. Big companies install filters like this because they can't trust their employees not to abuse them. And they can't trust their employees because they don't know their employees. In a company this big, it's easy to do nothing all day, fade into the background, and just be a waste of space. No one ever notices that you do nothing, and they'll never fire you anyway. In a smaller company, it's immediately obvious if you're not pulling your weight, so they can trust you with things like unfiltered web access because they'll know right away whether you're getting your job done or spending all day reading the latest drivel on salon.com. I can't wait to get out of here.
