    Your network admin needs to join the 21st century... Their 1990's security policies have no place in modern development!

    New policy: any work that is blocked more than 2 hours during the standard work day due to network security policies gets deducted from the network managers budget ;-)

    Fortunately I've never worked anywhere like this.

    If I did, I'd likely hand in my notice immediately. Nothing more frustrating than your employer who's asking you to do the work preventing you from doing the work...

    I joined a new company, network guy blocked all portals under IT and social category.
    I couldnt work on basic things.

    Had a talk with network guy inperson, told me to get official email from upper management.

    Email him and cc project manager and boss.

    In email

    .... as our network restrict access to basic portal I couldnot work. Its a just waste of time.
    I will be leaving home for the day.

    After 1 hour of email sent no response from anyone.
    Left for home.

    Next day
    Boss comes in asked me why did you left, told him its waste of time. Better to do my house chores.

    Still no acess.
    Left home

    The other day.
    Got full acess everything and even porn.
