Say that the open area is well-lit using natural light, and the cubicles are
windowed and soundproof, and that sounds like an ideal environment, full

(Oh yeah... plus kettle, good coffee and tea, and a fridge and a
microwave... and a swimming-pool with floating mats to have the team
meetings in... and a jacuzzi, sauna, and onsite physiotherapist... Actually,
my ideal working environment includes a cat to sit on my lap and purr at
