Yes, the company has a strict schedule, but It depends on who you work under for how strictly it is imposed.

UGH. What kind of work does the company do? Like others have said, it depends largely on the job how I would feel about all of this. I'm a creative professional, so it sounds terrible, but for an account manager it sounds more...
Sounds like good managers are as rare as good employees to me.

I didn't hate the Gap's, but the rise on these suits me better and they are a little bit slimmer. I probably just haven't bought into the style forum fit...

Subscribing. Would be interested to hear about any places in D.C.
The biggest issue with different monitors(for me) is the color difference. 2 monitors of the same brand and the same size can drastically different colors. You'd think calibration would alleviate this problem, but it just isn't the case unfortunately. That sort of thing may or may not bother you though.

If it would be substantially cheaper to just get two, though, then I'll probably just do that. Two is really easy. Pick out the monitors you want, and get a card that has 2 outs. The biggest cost is going to be the new monitor(s). Unless you are using a laptop, then all you need is a new monitor.

No, you'll need the whatever-the-newest-color-snow thing to do the unlock. I've never unlocked my phone, so I don't have any input there.
