People in cubicles and open offices long for privacy and probably get less work done. That this is surprising at all speaks to the current trendiness…
hate my open office
It’s so funny to read things like this. I work in the commercial furniture/interior design industry. Every architect, designer, etc marvels about the open office and how it’s changing the workforce. I’m not sure where they are getting their information. Even I work in an open office and I HATE it. My coworkers do too. I hate having to turn around and praise open office benefits to my clients when there do not seem to be any.
I cannot imagine HOW MUCH LESS work I’d get done if I didn’t have my own office. My job requires a lot of concentration and I already suffer so many interruptions. I can’t fathom how miserable I’d be working in the midst of a bunch of people.
I hate the cube farm. I hate it, hate it, hate it. I always thought I would have an office when I got to this level in my organization. I WAS WRONG, AND I AM NOT HAPPY ABOUT IT.
I’d be willing to trade my open layout for some cubes. It’s impossible to focus here when people are yelling.
I work in a glass cube “for client transparency” and I hate it
I was once in a really weird place with this guy and kitty and I almost threw up in front of his hotel room and all I kept saying was stupid nouveau riche over and over
