    Is the wifi at your work secure if so you will need the passcode for it.... That's the only reason I can think of

    it is password protected, but the Ipad does not even list it/ pick it up as a possible option. I know when i'm at home it will list all the neigbors wifi (protected or not).

    Try enabling the SSID then it should show up but you'll still need the password.
    Mine didn't show up but I just entered the password and it connected immediately.

    Agree, likely the SSID of the Wi-Fi network is set to not broadcast; if the network name is known, then enter it into the dialog box to 'connect to other networks'; as already stated, if security is being used, then a passcode will also be needed - good luck! :)
