How would you prefer to work?

I don't like people looking at me all day... especially the guy who sits by me... weirdoReply
Very distracting and noisy. Hard to concentrate. I work in HR and NO PRIVACY!!! It's difficult to do my job with no privacy at all.Reply
Because I am introverted and need silence and control of my environment, otherwise I become mentally exhausted quickly. Too much noise is also very distracting.Reply
I think there's a time for collaboration and a time to get stuff done. Meeting rooms and open spaces with whiteboards are great for working together to develop the requirements for a project, but, once that's done, it's time to put your nose to the grindstone.Reply
If the workload is light and you are brainstorming then constant interaction is necessary and welcome. However, if I'm swamped and need to concentrate it would be more difficult to be productive in an open layout.Reply
This isn't really anything new. Walk into any newsroom across America and you'll see a collaborative environment.Reply
