  •  No. We get cubes, instead. (13+ / 0-)

    With horrible flourescent lights that suck the soul.    

    The maintenance guy swears that he must change the bulb because the circuit won't operate if the light goes out, and yet, the light was out, and lo and behold, all the other lights that were presumably on the same circuit were still functional.

    So, now I have a stack of boxes to block out the soul-sucking flourescent interrogation lights.   Yes, I'm a nerd, but a happier nerd, because now there's a bit of shade.

    We have little glass windows on our cubes, so that people who walk down the hall can gaze into the cube, like visitors at a zoo exhibit.  

    ...and, here, we see the software engineer in his native habitat...

    Monkeys in a cage.

    The new HR guy asked at our last company meeting if we all know how to communicate our ideas to our new CEO.

    The room fell totally silent.  You could have heard a pin drop.  

    A previous CEO, upon being invited to speak at our annual IT meeting, gazed out over the audience, and these are the inspiring words that he said...

    "Just LOOK at all that OVERHEAD!!"

    In line with these remarks, our previous CIO had a little expression that she used when we "communicated our ideas".   She said...

    "VOTE with your feet"

    Our new HR guy seemed a bit concerned about our reaction.   Good luck to him if he wishes to change "The Culture".  We've learned our lesson well.  

    We vote with our feet.
