Wait. What is happening?!?!
Oh it’s NBD I’m still employed. My company is moving. Our corporation has been split between two offices in two cities and they just spent tens of millions of dollars to build us a new campus, and my team is first to move in on Monday.
They’ve done away with cubes in favor of a completely open floor plan consisting of honeycomb type cubes with literally no walls because they want to “encourage collaboration!” and “bring people together!” when it looks like most of the evidence really points to the fact that employees typically hate this and it decreases productivity, but it’s trendy and Facebook and Google are doing it and also they cost about ¾ of typical cube hardware and you can fit four people in the space of three typical cubes.
But honestly I’ve always wanted to work in a sardine can with people I can’t stand so it’s like the motherfucking jackpot for me. I’ll post some photos Monday of me throwing pig’s blood all over the 2nd floor.
