Waiting for his chance

Now I feel the need to invent a scheme based around 128-bit employee numbers, organized in a sparse namespace so that your id is also your exact spot in the corporate structure.

Black Summer was the best summer.

I am curious, how often does the average employee use their employee ID number in a given year? I don't currently know mine or give a poo poo that I have one, but I am sure I could look it up in my pay system. How do other company incorporate it so much that their employees use it often enough to even want to know it?

This happens on Android too. We have that setup. firstname.lastname@example.com address and flastname@example.com login.

Huh, I never knew that's why I always get my own emails when sent from my phone.

We don't have employee numbers, the employee number field on our pay stubs gets filled in as first three chars of first name + first three chars of last name

Thats what I get for phone posting. Changing all the employee logins to a loving number is stupid. I am an idiot for saying otherwise. All the companies that currently doing this are dumb dumb idiots too.

Not anymore, but the lower the pay, the more common it is to see.

What, you don't like needing to build your own correlation tool to read audit logs?

Breaux, Breaux, you seen a defense around here anywhere!?


I did some consulting work for a customer that did this and they provisioned me an account on their corporate network that was like s20465 and it was the dumbest goddamn thing ever. If you were an admin you got to have a regular stupid account number and an administrative stupid account number.

Previous job had two domains, separated for regulatory reasons.
One was 12345, the other 12345companyname

They also had different password expiration policies, so people's passwords wouldn't necessarily be synced up.
Ugh.

I worked at a hospital where people had to use them. SURPRISE! Morale was poo poo and everyone seemed unhappy. Probably didn't hurt that our director was really obviously a buzzword corporate manager rather than even slightly technical.

Also there were no windows anywhere, everything was grey, and we were explicitly told not to look too happy walking around the hospital.

Worst of all, no free coffee. You had to buy it from the cafeteria and dump five sugars and three pumps of non dairy creamer to make it tolerable.
