asks:
What is your opinion on cubicles? Do you like working in them? Do you detest them? Some people feel strongly one way or another about cubicles...

I actually don’t mind cubicles when they’re well made? I would prefer a real office, so I could play music and be loud without bothering people, but no one really has an office at Rogers. They’re glassed-in (actually plastic) larger cubicles, with even less privacy. At least with this pod I’ve got lots of magnet-space for stuff and its modular enough that you can do a bit of personalization (I’ve added display shelves and shit).

When I worked at Dose they had everyone working at one of two huge tables (each about 10’ by 30’) and that was amazing, but it suited the publication (daily youth-oriented magazine) and the incredible amount of work we had to do. I think at a slower paced office that setup would devolve into constant idle chatter.

Both the Globe and Mail and the National Post have gross desk cubicles from the 70s or 80s with dicky short walls and no storage or privacy. It was the worst.
