Same here. Cubicles suck, too, but at least they provide some isolation.

Friday is my most productive and happiest day of my work week. It's also the day I work from home.

It really depends on what you do and what your work style is. I was surprised that I didn't have nearly as many issues as I thought I would. But after two years in this space, I prefer it to our old cubicles. I would add more huddle rooms and give everyone both a little more space and noise canceling headphones for calls. But we do a ton of collaborative work (architecture) and we sit in project teams. I sit with my marketing colleagues. We were a tight group in the old cubicle farm, but I think we work together even better now.

But to each their own, and not everyone loves it. It's worked well for us.

Dual monitors block the person directly across from you. Unless you're abnormally tall.

The open workspace was super trendy for awhile until they realized that, oh surprise, distraction isn't good for productivity!

Have similar workspace in our office, which is why I work from home 4 days out of 5.
My work is very team oriented so it works very well. Depends on the industry I guess.

Mine changes every day. Today it's candles and little bit of extra lighting through the window. ImageImage

We have cubes. They're nice since we have a little closet type thing where I keep an extra suit in case I have to run to a client meeting last minute. No pics yet but I'll get a few things on the desk when I have time. Image

^^^ no doubt!

That’s a Navy tradition - pity the fool who washes someone’s coffee cup

I once made a Chief select steal all the coffee cups out of the goat locker on a fast attack and run them through the dishwasher. Needless to say, his “initiation season” did not go well. I think the Bull Nuke (very crusty Master Chief) wanted to kill the poor kid. Lucky for the kid, he was a 6’4” frogman.

Was in an office, but as of a month ago was moved into a large room of work clusters : inspector, engineer, mechanical work planner. Four of these groups in a big area with two desks to a large cubicle. Working alongside the inspector and planner is very productive. However the noise level gets out of control.

I’ve got a few pics of my son. Other decorations have gone back home as I’ve moved desks over the years.

I’m my home office that I recently did (old bedroom converted into office), I thought I was going to put a bunch of stuff in there and I really haven’t.
I have a blues brothers picture, a pic of my girlfriend, and a pic I bought off of Etsy, a caricature of Shawn Michaels kicking Marty Jannetty through a window.
Originally I was going to get this handmade wood flag for the wall and a few other things I wanted to hang and I never did. I also have one of my dads old paintings that needs to be framed and I will probably hang that up as well.

I had a "blue falcon" in our group wash out our Warrant Officer's coffee cup. That "blue falcon" got railed for 2 hours. :salute:

I hated that. My Michigan office is pretty nice but everyone (students, faculty, staff) talks nonstop in the hallways. It totally sucks.

My office is always changing but this is representative of them. No way could I spend all day cooped up in an office or cubicle. Like Hop I’d never get anything accomplished in one of those open concept office environments.

A couple pieces of "art" that I had in my first apartment 20+ years ago (framed Monet prints), pics of the family, old college baseball and football team pics and then a lot of swag from clients. And lots of files, books and paper. We have offices, but these days they are all the same size for everyone and meetings are almost always in conference rooms. I have a second chair in my office, but it is right behind my stand-up desk so it just holds my brief case because I would never see anyone who actually tries to sit in it.

Would go nuts if I was in a cube or common work space, but client confidentiality, etc... does not lend itself to that kind of thing anyway.

She does nicer watch art prints. She currently has 2 prints and one of the styles is sold out.

Toronto-based artist Julie Kraulis is currently working on a horological collection of graphite drawings, a study of timepieces. While most are commissioned, every now and then she finds a spare moment to work on an independent piece. Limited edition prints of these pieces will be released and sold right here.
