How important is your work environment to you?
Our office has recently undergone a severe downgrade in our work environment and we are all terribly unhappy. A friend of mine was recently saying he'd threatened to quit his job because the work they were giving him was boring, but when I mentioned how unhappy everyone was at my office with being taken out of generous sized private offices with doors and windows and shoved into noisy 6x6 cubicles with no privacy and glaring overhead lights he dismissed it, saying he couldn't care less about his workspace. Since he physically wouldn't fit on the sardine can I've been assigned (he's a big guy), I rather doubt his statement. But it led me to wonder how others felt. To me, spending 40 hours a week in a miserable work environment is a big detractor from the job.
