How bad could the new cubicles really be?

I have heard a lot of negative comments about the new space. How bad could they really be?

5nvm ....wow, that’s a lot of words. You’re obviously working on the 26 floor trying to sell the chicken crates. No sale, and nor even a nice try. They s--- . End of story.

Hey 5tlq, you seem to be pretty excited about an article validating your opinion. That's pretty normal. Most of us if not all, look for that kind of validation. But do you know that the Harvard study this article references was based on only 'two' case studies? Two, that's all. I'm no scientist but I'm thinking that's not a lot.

So, since google is my friend, I did a quick search and came across an interesting article. Interesting to me only because I don't know anything about space/office design, and since I am quite excited about moving into Brookfield and working in a modern workspace, I was wanting to look at an alternative viewpoint. Have a read if your are interested. https://workdesign.com/2018/08/a-workplace-strategists-response-to-the-harvard-research-on-open-plans/ Hope you can have an open mind. I'm obviously pretty excited about moving to place where i can work more closely with my peers instead of being stuck in my office. I understand that there are folks out there that don't share my viewpoint but hey, that's not my problem now, is it?

I just would love to make sure the goofball who came up with these worthless cubicles is right I’m the middle of 30 people and not in an office fixing her bangs.

Working in the cubicle isn't the issue, it's fitting the oversized egos inside that is the problem.

It’s like working in a fish bowl.
