The Stanley Comparable

Wow, I’ve never been given the opportunity to write on here before. I’ve been working with the company for almost a decade now, but I’d only ever heard stories about the famous blog. When my team leader came around to my little cubicle on floor 17C and said it was finally my turn, I almost … [Expand…]

Visiting Bentleigh

I feel like I have to write on this website more often than everyone else. What’s this, the third time this year? Maybe it’s only the second, but Rize has over five hundred employees. By the laws of probability, I should only have to write on the company blog once every year or two. We’re … [Expand…]

Guest Post: Archerak

It was actually really easy to book a spot on Australia’s Next Top Office. My audition didn’t go too well, but the judges changed their mind when I showed them my sphere of complete and utter destruction and how it could tear through matter like a wet paper bag. They had some concerns because they’d … [Expand…]

Rose Selling Blog

I love writing on the employee blog because I can smash out a post in half an hour, even though the allocated time is an hour and a half. I basically get an extra lunch break, which is awesome. Am I worried about being caught by posting this? Not really, since the only person who … [Expand…]

Great Rose Circus

The Great Roses War was the best thing that ever happened to my business. Once the mutated roses calmed down and stopped attacking people, I was able to herd a large group of them up. Now I’m training them to perform tricks so that the Grand Rose Circus can head on the road. It’s going … [Expand…]

What’s My Job?

Apparently it’s my turn to work on the company blog again since I got into work late today. I guess I’ll just give a summary of my day. I got up and had a shower, dressed and ate my breakfast. The last thing I do before leaving home every day is pack my suitcase of … [Expand…]

All Kitchens Now

So now it’s all kitchens here in Melbourne. I bet it’s because they’re opening that museum. Suddenly we all got a course correction in the middle of the morning, which was very irritating because they’d already sent us our work for the day. We were doing some work for a company that sells boogie boards, … [Expand…]

The Old Hobbies

If there was one thing my parents loved, a hobby they cherished more than anything, it was probably chasing me around the house with a slipper, beating me around the head and telling me that I was in trouble. BUT, if there was a second thing, it was boating. Many a weekend they spent out … [Expand…]

Decent Lighting

What is WRONG with the lighting in this place? Not only are they cheap flickering garbage, but they don’t even produce a consistent amount of light. Doesn’t help that our office is slap-bang in the middle of the building, leaving us in a dark void with no natural light and no outside view. You lose … [Expand…]

Last Office Left in Sydney…

Wonderful, so, that leaves us as the only office left in Sydney. The grand scheme to spread outside of Melbourne didn’t work out, so where there were once seven offices, they’ve been steadily shut down until it’s just us. At least the layoffs haven’t started yet here, but it’s only a matter of time. And … [Expand…]
