Our office is a very large rectangle - an inner rectangle surrounded by an outer rectangle. The outer consists of rows of offices, the inner houses most of the AA cubes, the kitchen, lobby, etc. I sat on one side of the rectangle and the persons I worked for sat on the opposite side which equaled quality time spent walking back and forth. When I was told recently that I would be getting the two new hires and they would be sitting on the other side, I asked that they somehow find a way to put me with my people. And here I am. And I have counterspace galore! It's awesome!!! These photos only show two sides, but there is a third wall, with a half counter and a five drawer file cabinet. I'll have to take a better photo.
