Open office...pros and cons
So guys (and girls…and anyone who identifies themselves to something else)
What do you think about open office plans? I have worked in open office all my career and I personally hate and despise them to the max. If I don’t listen to Chopin piano concertos from my noise canceling headphones, I literally can’t get any work done. It’s so distracting and frustrating. I have 2-3 co-workers whom I suspect of not knowing how phone works…they feel like they have to shout their orders/requests to the other side of the world. Then there a constant chatter about non-work related stuff and just overall chaos which distracts you.
I have read studies that open office is supposed to encourage interaction with coworkers…but based on my personal experience, it does the opposite. If I have something to say to a coworker working at a desk next to mine, I use the internal chat system. Actually walking over and spark up a convo…haha yeah in your dreams!
It ain't what you don't know that gets you in trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.
