Yes, which is where a lot of stories of how office life sucked
originally came from.

At least there were no pretenses of your having your own space.

I've seen companies spend *MORE* on cubes than real offices would have

The other thing is arranging them in a way that wastes the most space
possible.  I've seen so many times where they make a walkway all around
the cubes calling it convienient, when a single hallway would have
wasted less space, given more privacy, and reduced costs.

Oh well...
