shifted to new office

Hey buddies,

  Today we have got shifted to a new office. “We” means a portion of our BU (Business Unit) in the organization. The team belonging to one particular project account got shifted today and the rest will follow us on next monday.

  Some of our team mates had a thought of just seeing this office yesterday so that we may not have any difficulties in finding the route. Later we decided then what is the fun if we are well planned. Lets enjoy the first day finding the route. I was told that it would be 2 kms less than that of old office which usually takes around 15 kms everyday for one time journey.

  But to my surprise, i could enjoy the real fun as i had identified the office with no difficulties and also reached in 25 minutes which was quite surprising.. otherwise for 15 kms it would take around 45 to 50 minutes minimum. will 2 kms make such a big difference? probably it would in a city like Bangalore wherein you get 2,3 big signals within a couple of kms where each signal will make you wait for 3 minutes minimum.

   Its because i found the CTS name board and  my memory cache fetched the relevant matching keywords with the information what other admin, system people told abt this new office. With reference to that, just looked for in the listing and there it was! Good of the  administration people, they had done it in time.

  Though i was happy that i reached office with no difficulties and in less time, felt like continuing the fun since the floor in which our office is situated was not looking like an office at all. The whole corridor was looking a big hotel and till the time i reached the door (which also looked like the same) at the end, i could not come to a conclusion. Because wihin the premises, they dint keep any name plate or board neither in the reception nor in the corridors.

  Doubted like had i stepped into a 3* hotel or something and opened the door. Even after the surprise continued and i took a turn on the left side. Yes, the surprise ended soon after i saw my colleagues which was what i had been expecting ;-).

  Well, this new office looks so cool. Perhaps, because of having seen the same old office for so long and the ‘difference’ made me feel 🙂 But it really looks cool. Here CTS is the other IT company present in the same building. Its in Jubilee block near Utility Building which is close to corporation circle.  The construction would have been done in a well planned way. Perfectly fits for an IT company as every cubicle is having enough space around and the entire floor is divided into two and each of them are symmetric.

    The new office has a college nearby which is “Bishop  Cotton Girls Arts College”.  For me, its immaterial you know 😉

   The best part is that till monday, we are free to experiment the places and confirm the slots for us.. looks like 🙂  since we were allocated in one place initially and once my TL came he told we can better shift to some other place. We saw a cubicle with just 6 seats to cover the entire team in a compact way but he dint feel like as it was not on the window side. He felt like it would be better if we get the sunlight. I also agreed and we chose another cubicle.

   The best part is in the pantry, they have the LAN connection so that even people can have a casual dicussion by just taking their laptop with them. Good to see. The pantry is not so big but can accommodate around 20 people at a time.  As its facing the roadside as well as the playground besides, the people may have a good scenaries to look at.

   I am done with the most important part of finding out the pantry, restrooms (very obviuos you know), printer etc etc.., Also had accompanied two of my colleagues for breakfast thereby roamed a little to see the places around. Many more to explore gradually.!
