10 Things You Should Stop Complaining About at Work

Adam Starr

March 01, 2010



Perks

Did your company used to give you free food and weekly happy hours? Those things were nice but not necessary. America is in the worst economic climate since the Great Depression, so obviously your company isn’t going to spring for all of the perks it used to. If your company has to decide between laying off 10 people and cutting your catering budget, which would you rather they do? Perks are not required and should not be expected, only appreciated.

Companies understand that while perks are expensive, maintaining company culture is priceless. Rather than complaining about your misfortune, help out and be creative. If you used to get free cookies on Fridays, why not organize a calendar for employees to take turns baking their own confections for the team?

    And if my employer keeps it so cold that I have to wear gloves in the office? Can I complain then?

    Great tips! I can dig all except the temperature. I'll complain until I'm blue in the face. Literally.
