Photos on your work desk?
That sliver of red peeking out on the left is the only photoframe I currently have on my desk.
At the old desk I had about 4 - 5 photo frames plus about 10 - 15 photos stuck up on my cork board.
I heard from two people recently that having pics of your kids, etc. on your work desk is not a great idea, career-wise.
The one lady was being interviewed on a podcast and said something like she wants to be an equal to her male colleagues........... and the other lady is a colleague of mine who has a kid but we never hear about him nor see him. I asked about a photo and she said no way would she have a photo on her desk.....
You all know how I feel. This is who I am - take me or leave me. I like that I care about the other parts of my life enough to display them - I don't necessarily think it takes away from my professionalism.
But what do you think?
Do you have pics of your kids/ family up at work?
