::: So far my complaints to my manager and the manager of HR have fallen

What have they said in response?

You're not atypical. I doubt it's the former, either.

::: Before I make a formal request for a
::: quieter location, I'd like to gather some information about the
::: conditions other technical writers work in. Am I alone in needing a
::: relatively quiet place to work?

I highly doubt it.

::: How have others (especially lone
::: writers like me) succeeded in negotiating for a quiet
::: workspace?

"The noise is distracting and I'm not as productive as I could be with a bit
more quiet."

::: When applying for a new job, how do writers assess the
::: suitability of their future working environment?
