Has anybody ordered a Desktop monitor and taking it home to use when working from home even though you’re not technically supposed to?

Of course. Probably going to order a second monitor for home in the near future so I can have double screens

Why would you buy it when you can just order one free? You can always make a case for increased productivity or at least less strain on your eyes

I’ve heard of people ordering 6+ monitors and no one caring, go for it

I make pretty good money. I just bought another monitor to use at home

I have 2 portable monitors (one I thought was broke, but the connection just needed to be secured) and 2 desktop monitors (1 at home, 1 at a client)

I’ve ordered multiple monitors, I ordered a keyboard and mouse that I gave to my wife for her office elsewhere, I’ve ordered several keyboards and mouses for myself for multiple locations, ordered a Bluetooth mouse that I gave to my little brother for Christmas. No one cares, no one has ever questioned it

I've ordered 3 desktop and 3 portable in 4 years. One is at home that I use only when I work from home. The amount of times a staff has ganked my shit right off my desk when I'm at the client/not in the office for 24 hours is unreal. Nobody can track that shit and nobody gives a shit.

@PwC 5 I think you took it too far

Our annual reviews are approaching & one of my direct reports has been with us for almost six years w/ little growth. My reco was to let him go & find a stronger, hungrier & more motivated designer at the same level. However, my boss instead wants us to promote him in hopes that will spark some motivation. I am not behind this decision & have voiced my multitude of concerns in promoting an employee who doesn't deserve it. HR is behind the decision! Thoughts on promoting an undeserving report?

Unpleasant experience with CogniHRs
This HR shared the offer, but then there was no communication from his side. He neither replied to any of my emails or calls for 2 weeks (I stopped trying after that).
At most times his call was busy or switched off!
Although his offer was not apt for me to accept it. But atleast he could have come back for negotiation or further communication.
I emailed cognizant on their careers email, there too, no one cared to respond.
Pathetic experience with Cognizant.
