Monday morning

  • 7:55 am: I arrive at the SkyVantage corporate offices, I see some colleagues nearby and say a quick hello to them.
  • 8:00 am: At my desk. Turn on my iMac, complete with dual monitors. Log on and check the SkyVantage Calendar for today’s meetings and appointments. I log on to the project manager site and check my To-Do-List. Yes! My hour therapeutic massage is next week! (gotta love office mojo perks!)
  • 8:15 am: I am greeted by the “Office Mojo Assistant” who asks me what I want to drink. The assistant also brings my favorite snacks which are kept on hand.
  • 8:20 am: I prepare for the weekly meeting of all SkyVantage employees. I meet with the head of Development and discuss any items that need to be brought up during the meeting.
  • 9:00 am: We meet in the conference area. Important items for the week are discussed and I give my input to every member of SkyVantage.
  • 10:00 am: I begin working on the development items for the day.
  • 10:45 am: I have a question regarding my current project, so I discuss it with my team and my manager calls an impromptu meeting on the whiteboards. We discuss the best technology to use and any business requirements.
  • 11:00 am: The Office Mojo Assistant checks up on me and refills my drink and snacks.
  • 11:45 am: I finish my project and add my notes into the project management site. I then hand it over for the QA process. 12:00 pm: I enjoy a nice lunch at a local restaurant with several of the employees – they like the break and we typically will not take work items to do during lunch.
  • 1:00 pm: Back at my desk. Check and respond to emails. I check the project management site for what is the next development item.
  • 1:30 pm: Start a new project. I have questions so I walk over to the support department and find out more information.
  • 1:55 pm: The Office Mojo Assistant checks up on me and refills my drink and snacks.
  • 3:00 pm: A break is needed, so I launch a Call of Duty LAN party on the wall with 4-60 inch TV’s. A couple other employees join in as we battle Juggernauts.
  • 3:30 pm: At my desk, I continue working on my project. Why doesn’t this block of code work?!?!
  • 5:00 pm: I head for home to enjoy my personal life.
