    You really can't expect privacy when using your employer's gear. Or even their network. Just because it's their stuff. And you might be attacking them, or at least carelessly putting them at risk. So if you want privacy at work, use your own gear. And maybe a VPN service too.

    Anyway you aren't supposed to do personal stuff at work, so you shouldn't have anything to hide there, hence you should not worry that your employer monitors you.
