Some technology companies never adopted cubes. Microsoft Corp., for example, promotes quiet and concentration by giving most workers offices with doors.
That is costly. Chris Hood, a manager in what H-P calls its Workplace program, said contact and collaboration boost productivity for many employees. Rather than make isolation the norm, employers should provide quiet zones for when they are needed, he said.
What is generally also noticed is increased noise, particularly with cubicles near conference rooms. Also, a lack of privacy is another issue. It's very difficult to call a recruiter from a cube!
