UIT staff share what it's like working at home

With most people telecommuting these days, we recently asked UIT employees to share a behind-the-scenes look at what it's like working from home. So far, we've heard about and seen photos of new co-workers, makeshift office spaces, favorite emojis, food experiments, budding blossoms, and more.

Here are some highlights from the UIT remote work show-and-tell Microsoft Teams channel

New co-workers

Above: "This officemate is Pumpkin. Some days I suspect he's part fox."

~ Chris Robinson, Chief Technology Officer organization

Right: "Working from home isn't so bad, but the new coworker is starting to get on my nerves with how loud he chews, but we both don't mind these old rice stadium seats as office chairs ..."

~ Peter Brian Hemingway, Teaching & Learning Technologies 


Office spaces

Above: "My wife is the better engineer — you can tell because she has more terminal windows open. I have better cable management, though."

~ Chris Robinson, CTO

Right: "Spare bedroom turned office. The real office is where my wife does her job."

~ Dave Huth, CTO


The view from home

"I planted these bulbs last fall and probably wouldn’t have had a chance to enjoy them without being isolated. I’ve been able to see the leaves break through the ground and all of the flowers come out. I’ve looked forward to it every day."

~ Paula Millington, Strategic Planning and Process Team


Favorite emoji

"... Mine in MS Teams."

~ Kim Tanner, CTO


"I want to say thank you to the U for doing the right thing and letting us work from home."

~ Bryan Wooten, Information Security Office
