Since we moved to a new location, the company decided to save some money by minimizing the amout of walls between workers. There are no walls on the sides (we can see each other all the time), and only one wall in front of us (I can see the head of a co-worker). You can imagine the amount of noise when everyone is speaking on the phone or just chatting. I'm quitting my job because of this, and I'm not the only one... Cry | :((
