Lawyers and Financial Planners

2003-06-04 02:01:06.077646+00 by Dan Lyke 0 comments

Last Thursday the company I work for moved our offices, we're now right in San Francisco's financial district less than a block off of Market Street. A "Class A" building, security guards who know you, all that stuff. Lots of lawyers and financial services types companies. The lease is over 30 pages long, and there are all sorts of rules about what we can and can't do. We have to get approval to move anything, and we can't take out our own garbage.

At first I thought these rules were for the decorum of the building, but as I've learned the ins-and-outs and how the building staff interpret these things I've realized that most of these rules are in place to prevent employees from stealing from companies who lease space in the building.

Huh. Lawyer's offices and investment companies with employee theft problems. Go figure.
