It's actually a blast as long as you're not some weirdo introvert

Working in a cubicle farm has to be soul draining

it really is.  i think of friends who don’t have to deal with the slow death of a cubicle and wish I was as lucky as they

Work in an "open plan" and you will really miss your cubicle

ya that’s decidedly worse. at one point my last company began transitioning to 3 foot high cubes with 2 people in each.  kind of a blended solution.

Open office would def be more annoying, but less soul draining I think

Absolute hell. It's stopping me from taking a corporate role. Department head and above have offices. Every other person is in a 3' wall open office. Blah.

We have 4 foot tall cube walls, but the top foot is a window. And we just yell at each other over the walls. And there are only 3.5 people in the cube area.

Want to know an awesome thing about having a real office? Well I don't ever turn my light on cause I get enough natural light from the windows but sometimes someone will stop by my office to bug me but the light is off and I'm hidden behind the huge monitors so the person just assumes I'm not there and goes away. It's great

Maybe this is why people are immediately turning around and leaving.

HR came by and and asked me about the food from my culture so they can include it in the holiday party.

Chili, cinnamon rolls, and bierocks it is!

It's also nice if you want to catch up on some Netflix during lunch.  Lock the door and everyone assumes I went out.

My old company went from full cubes to open floor plan where even execs were at a desk.  Was really annoying listening to them on calls all day.  We had mini offices that you could use for calls but they rarely used them.  Now I have an office that is completely devoid of things and people and I love it.

Our company x-mas party is tonight. Because you can't just substitute drinking at a company x-mas party with weekly happy hour drinking, the office drinking crew moved up their trip to the bar and went last night instead of tonight. They are flexible! I joined them for the first time in a long time. A few highlights:

* As previously mentioned, the bar down the road has $2.50 double wells. At this point, the bartender just automatically pours rums and Coke into pint glasses for the regulars as they walk in. Like, pint glasses filled to the top, for real.

* The company president, who actually lives four hours away in Cleveland but is in town for the x-mas party, was there and picked up the tab (up to that point) on his way out. There were about ten of us there. I, myself had four pints of craft beer. The bill total, which I saw with my own eyes, was $37.

* The bartender/owner was slightly fretting about having to take down all of her elaborate holiday decorations on a Friday only to turn around and put them back up on a Sunday because Insane Clown Posse is going to be playing there soon and, according to her, "are going to totally trash the place. :/" She assured us that everything would be safe, though, because she has 15 bouncers that she refers to as "SEAL Team Six."

I share an office and we have a face to face setup.  But I did make sure my monitors are angled just right so they can't be seen from the doorway, and I have plenty of time to minimize Netflix or Amazon Prime or whatever i'm watching/listening too as I do my work.

I may or may not have access to the security camera in my hallway, allowing me to screen potential visitors before opening my door.

As part of our sustainability effort they put in motion sensor light switches. At least 1-2 times each day I have to waive.my arms to get the lights back on in my office.  You can walk along a row of offices and lights will randomly go out.

At one point I downloaded the switch setup   file and tried to reprogram it.  All I could do was max out the time it stayed on.

Weird idea for an office setting.

Maybe try one of those drinking birds or grab a newton's cradle?
