I posted a response on the Quote thread that suggested my boss did not like me spending time at the Cove (he actually encourages it. It makes me better and I do get some good useful info here). That got me thinking. How does your boss feel about your Cove activity? Let us know!

I tried to post that I'm the boss but the post gizmo didn't work (Well actually I'm not. I've been sleeping with the real BOSS for 21 years though)

My boss is pleased that I get good ideas here, but I don't flagrantly sit here and read and post in front of his face. What worries me most is other people passing by and seeing me on the internet and figuring that I'm goofing off. They probably figure I'm in some sort of chat room.

As a new training person to an ISO company I had talked with our Quality guy and he actually told me about this forum. It has been in-valuable to me and has made my learning curve go up a lot faster. I do have to agree with db, to some it may same like I'm surfing or chatting. The boss does not have a problem so that is my big concern.

Thanks

They pay

My boss has authorized full full membership fees to this site as part of my "Quality Budget". That would qualify as "he don't care if I visit or not". "Do you need it?", he asked. "Yes!" "You got it!" Nice, huh? Do I need it, now? Sometimes.:vfunny: :ko: :smokin:

I'll have to agree there. Even though I do get a lot of valuable info and hints here, that fact may not be apparent to everyone who passes my room.

Can't really vote for any of the choices...so I'll pick number 7.

This is the only place I can come and get an intelligent answer or opinion to any question without getting a dumb look (at least I think so). If they took my computer away today I'd go to the library! :D

I'm with Lucinda -- my direct boss doesn't care, he trusts me that I'm not screwing off, but "others" who don't have all the info. might get the wrong idea, so I don't usually post or read when others are around so as to not rock the boat. Some folks here just look for trouble to start. I think I get more than the "cost" in time of participating. Sound's like Energy's boss has the right attitude -- hire the right folks, trust 'em, and give 'em the tools they need.

I work in the Engineering department as well as running our quality system. As long as my work gets done my boss has no problem with it. If fact, I stress how helpful the cove has been in my task of switching our system from 1994 to 9001.

:D
