I interviewed at a company once where they had these odd desk-pods: three
large U-shaped tables put together in a small cluster. Three or four people
sat at each table with no separation between them. Seeing the too-open
layout gave me mild panic attacks. I like to work with others, but I also
like to sit in my cube quietly. Alone.

I was very glad when I didn't get that job.
