    Ok... i work in an open plan office too. But they really aren't as bad as everyone thinks, it's only change that people hate. I like having other people so close to talk to, it makes things more friendly. I don't see a change in productivity, as everyone is on their headphones anyway.

        Meh. Feel like you can provide any link that says something about open offices being good or bad. Doesn't really matter, if you work in one, get used it.

          But other people might not like people so close talking at them. Or over them at someone else 3 chairs over.
          Doesn't really matter. I have a door. Even closed, it doesn't keep people out.

            I went for an interview once in a place that had an open office type studio. I said to the guy showing me around "You really like to keep an eye on your people don't you" and his grin froze. "Would that really bother you?" he asked. I made it clear to him that I was interviewing him too and he really didn't like that. I didn't get the job - unfortunately because I would have enjoyed writing a letter explaining why I was turning it down.

              There needs to be a law passed to forbid open office plans - I work in a small office with 3 other women and no dividers. So anytime they talk or skype it's literally 2 feet from my ear. I put headphones on but I can still hear them. And my manager who sits right next to me often just starts talking to me - even though I have my headphones on. Oh but I'm supposed to be creative though - right!
