Who's going and who's not going?
And who's boss is to cheap to put one on?
last office party the firm had was in 1991. every where i have worked at since has never had one.
at the place i work at now, 6 years i have been there, you get NOTHING. no card-no bonus-no bottles-no turkey- f-all.
so no party for me again.
the LPSG party? i'll be there
You know they are not all that great...mostly having drinks with people you would never be out with otherwise who then feel uninhibited enough to say and do things that they are going to regret...should they remember.
I don't care for most work holiday parties. Where I work, we've had a bunch of layoffs; even the Big Guy at the top got let go. We're just not doing a holiday party this year; it's not the time to spend money on a big, lavish affair after our co-workers lost their jobs.
PS -- that money would be better spent at a local food bank this season.
My office really doesn't do it - so I really don't have a decision to make.
But I think when it's done right, it can be a great thing for everyone to get together at the end of the year - it sort of ends one period and then you begin another one.
and I'm sure folks will be getting drunk & acting foolishly...
should be fun to watch...
I already held one last week. I will have to think about whether to do it again next year. It's costly, and attendance has been down. I might change up the location.
I never went to the ones hosted by my employer.
Well, I'm the boss I think we threw a great party last night. Held at the lovely home of a longtime employee. Truly incredible caterer and chef. Open and excellent wine and beer bar. Smokers like me generously accommodated with a covered outdoor area. Thirty eight of 44 employees showed up and nearly everyone stayed too late having fun, laughing, eating and drinking and then many continued on to a nearby nightclub though I called it a night when the last guests departed. Everyone made it home safe and sound, though keys were necessarily persuaded from one merrymaker.
The chef, incidentally, is also employed as a private chef for a family residing in the Ponzi mansion (the Ponzi scheme Ponzi) here in the Boston area.
