On the surface, the idea of the open-office layout sounds good: no walls, no barriers, just pure, unfiltered face-to-face interaction with your coworkers. But studies have shown that open-offices arent really as awesome as they sound, despite countless large companies going wild for them. There are several issues that damage the open-office approach: the lack of privacy, the distraction of countless people coming and going and of course the noise my God, the noise. The phones are ringing, your peers are talking, someone is beating on their keyboard like theyre playing Whack-a-Mole. An open-office isnt so much a creative idea to spur productivity as it is a cacophony of industrial chaos. A little privacy, please! I can message you if I need you.
