Open plan offices are a BAD idea

I am about to start a job that has an open office plan and I am really dreading this part of the job.

Why do you say? 3 reasons:

  1. I have been spoiled by having a private office in my last job. It was one of the best experiences working that I have ever had. I was devastated when I was laid off for many reasons, and losing a private office was one of them.
  2. I have an issue when other people crunch around me. I am in a semi-open office right now and when my co-workers crunch, I have to put on some headphones, and usually, I don’t have anything playing, I just use them to cancel the crunching sound.
  3. I have recently seen articles that prove that this is a bad idea.

Here are a couple of recent articles to prove my last point. If you have something that will calm my nerves about the open office, comment below.
