My job is in between as well. I work in an office, but I make frequent stops at the shop to make something for a company project. Sometimes I spend basically the whole day in the shop.

I have been in an office for about 6 years, the only thing I dislike about it is the weight gain from inactivity all day.

Don't work in an office, and don't like it (my job, not the not working in an office part).

I work in an office and I like it for the most part. Luckily I have access to BF or else I'd be really bored.

I spent about twenty years working in department stores and grew to hate it and have little but scorn for the shoppers. I have worked in an office for the last fifteen years, but would much rather be working in a shop building something.

I'm a cube rat, working in an engineering firm. I don't care too much for the physical environment, but I love my job...

But I am 50% of the office population! And my boss is only in the office about 50% of the time. Have been known to bring a bike to work with me to work on when it is slow.

Office since graduated school. Compared to my old jobs I love it. AC, kitchen, internet, combine that with really liking what I do, its hardly work, just have to spend 7 hours of my day here. Sometimes I stay longer cause the AC's nice and I dont' want to ride in the heat.

I work in the same "office" environment all the time, it just changes altitude and location.

BDG, I think you've got another cabanaboy candidate here ^^^, and he could even help with the paperwork!

Used to work in a cube farm, was ok though sometime the guy clippin' his nails in the next cube was annoying. But that's what earphones are for. Loved the work. Average of once every two weeks, I was in the field either at meetings with clients, or at the facilities where we had oversight for some kind of modifications.

I'll probably be back in a cube farm by the end of the year....

In the office...cube actually (we call them "pods" here ). I like where I'm at for several reasons, not the least of which is that I can ride my bike to work.

I'm a regional manager for my company and handle several states. I have a home office. My company HQ is in another state. I enjoy working from home with the freedom it allows. There are some things I miss out on that I wish I had- office camaraderie, rumors, up to date company news.

Of course there are plenty of things that I miss out on that I'm glad I don't have to deal with - office politics, last minute fire drills, etc.

After working from home for 8 of the last 12 years it would be really tough to go back to a regular office job.

I have worked in an office before. Whether or not I liked the work depended upon the jobs I held, how well I could perform them, the people I worked with, and so on.
