This is a query about work environments, just because I'm interested in
learning under what physical (environmental) conditions other tech writers
(or communicators, if you will) find themselves employed. We've moved
recently, and now work in 8 x 8 foot modular cubes, what we refer to as
"pods," and we now call ourselves "pod people."

If you have time, please describe your work area, including: home office or
on-site, square feet, natural light or lack thereof, cubes/pods v. open
spaces v. enclosed offices, quiet v. the din of phones ringing and people
talking. If you have a "real office" (one with floor to ceiling walls and
maybe even a door), does everyone in the company/office/unit have one, or
are you special (because of seniority, supervision responsibilities,

Do you find that your work space affects your output or morale? Or are you
the kind who could do creative work in a busy railroad station, fumes and
all, and not be negatively affected?

Do you work onsite or from home (or both)? If you work from home, was the
working environment part of your decision to contract? to telecommute?

Add any other work-environment info you'd like to share. Respond to me
directly if you will, and if there's interest, I'll summarize to the list.

Thanks for your time.
