Helping you survive working in a cube.  Every day.

Why Did I Create This Site?

Some people out there don't mind sitting in a cubicle at work.  I am not one of those people, I'd rather work in an office.  Maybe you are like me.  I find sitting in a cube incredibly distracting, especially when I'm trying to concentrate.   Even when I'm not doing something that requires complete concentration, I find that some people's cubicle etiquette can be very irritating. 

Over the years I've worked in a cubicle, I have come up with a few things to make working in this type of environment more tolerable.  In some cases, other people gave me good ideas (I worked with a guy named Tom Bachand and he had a rectangular wide-angle mirror that he found in a parking lot on his computer monintor so I went out and bought one myself).  I wanted to share this knowledge with others which is why I've created the Cubicle Survival Kit.  Of course, I'm assuming you have your very own cubicle and don't have to endure the process of "hoteling" in which a company (often a consulting firm) only assigns an employee a small rolling file cabinet and the employee has to find a spot to work each day they are in the office.

I also thought there was a need for some relevant cubicle-related content which is why I've included the cubicle quiz, a forum for asking questions of the Cube Guy, a place to submit your own classic cube stories, cubicle postcards, and more.

So why are cubicles so prevalent?  One school of thought says that cubes reduce hierarchy and inspire collaboration within an organization.  That may be true to a degree, but we all know that cubicles save companies tons of money because they can fit more employees into less space.  It's unlikely that the trend towards cubicles is going to change anytime soon, so what can you do?  You can order the Cubicle Survival Kit to make the best of the situation.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not bashing the people whose make the decisions to put employees in cubicles.  It's just that the widespread adoption of cubicles is a relatively new development in the workplace and office etiquette has not caught up to this development.   The Cubicle Survival Kit is my way of helping employees do their jobs.  This will ultimately increase productivity and corporate profits and these days, that's never been more important.  Tell this to your boss and you might even convince him or her to reimburse you for the price of the Kit.
