I've worked in windowless offices for most of my career. My current
office has huge windows that look out on the nearby mountains. Though my
cubicle is not next to a window, I have only to lean back in my chair to
see out of the window in a coworker's cubicle. My personal experience is
that the lack of sunlight during a normal 8 or 9-hour workday has no
direct effect on productivity. When I worked in windowless offices, I'd
occasionally take a break outside or at least to a place with a window.
