I'd never been a large cubicle hive until I went on a consulting gig 
with my boss to Intel.  It was more like a parking garage, with labels 
on the pillars (I know now this is de rigueur, but at the time it kind 
of weirded me out--my company had maybe 20 employees).  The only cool 
thing about Intel (after being searched before going in :-/), was that 
even the executives had cubicles.  To accommodate their need for 
conferences and privacy, they had each had a small meeting room they 
were "owner" of, but their desks and computers were in cubicles just 
like the bees'.
