in reply to I work...

Voted for "in an office," but it's a shared office. There are two other desks in the office, one occupied, the other for an employee currently working off-site. I'd take a pretty significant pay cut in order to have my own office. talexb mentions the bonus of this type of arrangement, where it's simple to ask others questions and such. But the downside is that it's simple to ask others questions and such -- I just want some peace and quiet so I can get things done.

    Noise cancelling headphones.


      I do actually have some noise-blocking earphones (passive, not active canceling) and they work very well. However I've missed phone calls due to this. For example, my supervisor calling from a meeting to ask a question relevant to the meeting, in a room without a computer (so email wasn't feasible). I've also had several instances of people talking to me but not noticing that I have earphones in my ears and can't hear a word they're saying.

      So as much as I like them, they're a little problematic. If I had my own office the interruptions wouldn't be as much of an issue.
