does physical space matters? can you work on a very crowded place? i know big companies have a lot of employee but still they manage to maximize their workplace and still make it suitable for creative working but there are also companies which don't make physical space a priority thinking they can still work even on a very crowded and messy place. i believe a good spacious workplace matters in creating productive employees. our minds need an environment suitable for creative thinking and imagining and i guess we will not produce efficiently when our place are very cluttered and unharmonized. i know we have different opinion so feel free to voice it out. do you have a good physical space at your workplace or you don't really mind at all as long as nobody disturb you.

Fortunately or unfortunately, I've spent 20 years in my job without ever dreaming of spaces.We still have a work culture, especially as in any other Govt firm, wherein it is 'do what I say , don't ask'.Tell me how could ever one thinks creatively ? Those organizations who look for and work for creativity would definitely mind work environment to be of suitable for excellency in performance.

I rarely spend time in the faculty room. Not because it is very crowded but because I do not want to listen to their useless discussions. I spend most of my working time in the classroom. If I need to work on some papers, I would either spend my time in the library or in the nearest cafe.

I am the type of person who can work in any situation... even in crowded places with a lot of clutter... as long as i have a big table in front of me... and no one is bothering me... i have no problem doing what i do best... most of the time i welcome the distraction... since i don't like a monotonous work day...

I agree with you djmarion, it will be hard for me to become effective and productive in my work if I will be put in a very crowded place. During my past works, I always thankful that we had a very conducive place where we can work and think more effectively!

Yeah I can work in a busy place. I do work at stop and shop and that place gets packed a lot with people buying food everyday. Ive never had a problem with it being busy except that I get tired. But I would pefer to work in an office by myself rather then in a big company. Especially if I have to think a lot because I dont really have to think at stop and shop.
