I'm in an office with around 8 co-workers.
My desk is in the middle of the office. There's 2 people in front of me, 2 people to the right of me, and 3 people sitting behind me.
I'm the only webdeveloper, and therefor I think I need to concentrate most on my job. But every time I'm working, I hear phone's ringing, people talking, doors opening, papers printing, etc. I hear sounds from any possible direction, in a 360 degrees angle.
This makes it hard for me to focus on my job, and demotivates me as it's exhausting me.
Before I had another place, which was in a corner. And I got at least 2 times more work done in the same work hours.
They then completely changed the layout of the office. And I had gotten this place assigned to me.
