Sleeping in the Office

Is this still a thing in IB? I've read that preferred destinations for this are empty conference rooms at night and bathroom stalls during the day, not sure if people actually do this as I find it hard to imagine how one could fall asleep while someone is taking a massive dump right next to you.

What are your experiences/tactics for this? Also how did people react if they caught a person sleeping at the office.

Asking for a friend.

Nothing better than the conference call desk nap. Just sitting there on a call dozing off right in your chair with your headset on.

Second this. Would sometimes schedule phantom calls just so I could throw the headset on and doze off.

Don't do it. It isn't encouraged and shouldn't be done.

Forget the conference room and go to the wellness/nursing room. Just don't make it a habit and make sure to only use it for a couple hours and get out as soon as you are done. Do not stay past 7am in there and do not abuse it.
