    Mind you, I'm not making any recommendations, just illustrating the feature.
    I know they aren't holes but they can be weak spots. I rip them out of envelopes I recycle and some are simply crap.

    If the OP has to come on here to ask about this stuff he may not be careful how he puts his coins in the envelope and carries them, possibly damaging the window.

        Yeah but we don't expect the OP to work out the quality of envelopes with windows hence it's better for him to concentrate on getting good quality envelopes without them.

            Avoid the HQ

            Any recent contractors in Newbury HQ, how you manage to park if you are working @ HQ.What are the options and how costly are those options.?

            I have seen old messages, not seen anything new how contractors working in HQ are managing it..?
            Last time I was there, if based at the HQ the carpark is a good couple of miles due south and you use the free bus.

            Vodafone HQ 2014:
            Packed to the gunnels with people.
            Virtually no hot desks if you haven't been allocated one.
            No free coffee.
            Bring your own coffee, milk, sugar and wait to use the kettle.
            Can buy coffee at the Costas in the main building.

            Other VF buildings? Absoluely fine. Loads of desks (hot or allocated), parking, canteen and free coffee all day long.
            Hop on the free bus for meetings at the HQ.

            I formed the impression VF were packing the HQ with graduates 'to make it feel like a groovy happening place'.
            BS, it was a horrid working environment.
            The HQ isn't what it used to be.

              This is a very serious thread about business. Why does it need to be moved?

                Indeed. I've learnt more about paying cash in a letter here than anywhere else. A valuable business resource oooaarr to be sure.

                  In a letter? When did we move on from envelopes?

                    I'd got the hang of that bit after all the useful information in this thread so was going to take it to the next level.

                      Letters hope the OP has too.
