I just received word that I now have security clearance to use the elevators before 7:00 AM. What's interesting about this is I made the request for access just this morning. Within a few hours someone acknowledged and serviced a request.
My expectations have been set by working in a culture where any access request can be expected to sit for a minimum of a week, often to be denied by an unnamed person with no explanation. I don't know how a culture can evolve in a supposedly successful company where that type of behavior is considered acceptable.
Kudos to my client for not being dysfunctional. Am I going to think my client is awesome for every dysfunction that they lack that my old employer had?
