I work in an open area with glass cubes. It's very difficult to concentrate.
Everyone is on phones. I have speaker crappy music.
I have a person in front of me bobbing their head all day.
Very distracting. I enjoy the guys I work with they all sit their own room.
I initially had a crappy chair with no arms at the end of day programming my wrists hurt.
I made it clear to my boss that it sucks.

The positive is its close to my home. 5 min commute.

1. Put up with until they let me go.
2. Find a new job.
3. Put a bag over my head and monitors


I am leaning to finding another place to work.

Any suggestions ? ? ?


UPDATE :

Had enough and quit.
Need the work, but much happier !!!
Best thing I have done in a while.
