BYOD might be a hipster honeypot but it's rarely worth the extra hassle


Re: Never saw the Attraction

The closest my work supplied phone has made it to my house is the glove box of my car, and the only time my personal phone number has ever been given to an employer was on a job application.

Giving staff a 'free' work phone is nothing more than a cheap bribe to make you available out of hours.

One of my colleagues has never unplugged his phone from the charger as soon as he found out our employer could ping his location. They may as well given him a desk phone.
