So far the first day on the new job has been uneventful; not a lot to do yet since my accounts aren’t set up for the system access I need. There will be plenty enough to do later so I shouldn’t rush it, but I hate sitting at work doing nothing.
I met most of the department; they all seem real nice so far and I had lunch with a couple of them. This building is really impressive: bigger than any mall I’ve ever been in, and it looks like one. Escalators and glass everywhere, including the roof.
The pace is much slower than what I was used to before. Right now they have about 20(!) tickets in their queue. I just about fell over when I saw that, when at my old job our total ticket queue stood at over 500!
