For 17 years I was a manager and always had my own office. You need a private space when you manage people. There are a lot of confidential papers and conversations.
When I resigned from my management position my office had become very comfortable.
Now I am in the cubicle world.
I’ve noticed that I have developed a number of pet peeves that I didn’t have to deal with when I had my own office.
Although I’ll never go back to management again I sure wouldn’t mind having an office to avoid these things that I hate about the cubicle world.
