A little bit of background; I work for an overall great company in a great industry – but like any job, it has it’s flaws. My boss won’t make any demands with the owner and lets our department fall to the wayside when it comes to basic needs.
My job is highly seasonal (August-March) where I am working well over 40 hours a week, potentially into the upper 70’s, low 80’s. That being said, every department in our company has two screens at work… Minus mine. I’ve whined, I’ve asked IT directly, I’ve talked to my manager, etc. My manager is too much of a pushover to get room in the budget for our department of 3 people to get an extra screen. At our company, it seems like that loudest person gets the most – not ideal for my pushover of a boss. 🙁 The new guy in accounting has two screens, our receptionists have two screens. During our peak season my dept would be WAY more effective with two screens.
So – that leads me to the following question: Should I just go ahead and buy my own second screen? If so, I would like to get a small TV that can double as a computer screen (so it has a purpose when I’m done here). Here’s the catch – I don’t know what I’m looking for & I don’t want to spend a ton of money… HELP!
