Another reason I'd only work for you if I had no other options: I've
worked in a pretty-much "open plan" office, and *LOATHE* it. Not only
*zero* privacy, but *far* too much noise and distraction to concentrate.

I remember working at the Scummy Mortgage Co (name available upon request)
many years ago, with five desks, and the sr programmer and the analyst on
the phone 60% or 70% of the time. I had a tape player, to listen to some
training tapes; when I'd finished them, I put in some music. My boss came
by, asked if I was done the training, and I told him I had music on, to
make it easier to concentrate and increase my productivity. He told me to
take them off and increase my productivity.

Open-plan office, *crap*. Do the managers or execs work in them, too?
