Like every other department in Zephyr, Training Sales has an open floor plan, which means everyone works in a sprawling cubicle farm except the manager, who has an office with a glass internal wall, across which blinds are permanently drawn. Open-plan seating, it has been explained in company-wide memos, increases teamwork and boosts productivity.
Except in managers, that is, whose productivity tends to be boosted by – and the memos don’t say this, but the conclusion is inescapable – corner offices with excellent views.
Also, thanks Greg for the suggestion to read Company. Good read.
