I can still hear the people around me so the thought of privacy is not the benefit, the square grey cubes are dull and structured so that I think it truly squashes any environment for creativity.
Not sure I have a good answer though.
- Circles with color, we can call them pods, may be a little more flowing but not cost effective for space.
- I have seen more windows used in some cubes to help give more light and openness, but people feel like they are in a fish tank.
- A bunch of desks stuck together would make you feel like you were back in grade school.
Maybe some people are fine with it, and maybe it’s not that I wasn’t created to work in a cube but that I was created to do something different.
