It depends on what you mean by quiet. I prefer to be sitting with my project
team and having normal conversations about the work at hand.

I'd be more concerned about why your company has isolated you - is that the
case? Where is the team developing the stuff you are writing about? Has your
company lumped you in with the other 'support' staff and isolated you from
your project team?
