No, I'm in-house at a silicon valley company.


Can you explain how this works with like, paper? For example, my office has a lot of binders. I’m not sure where those would go in an open-office concept.

I worked in an open office, but I was assigned a seat. I was also assigned a big drawer in a filing cabinet for all my papers.

That being said, if my firm ever moves to open office plan, I'm lateraling. I would even take a 10k pay cut for my own office. I have sat next to loud laughers, loud chewers, loud phone callers. I would gladly forego money so I have a door that I can close and avoid all of the bullshit.

Paper? We're all digital. There are filing cabinets somewhere in the building, but I've never needed them.
