Background: 5 teams in the area and I was recently promoted to lead one of them. Currently, only the director has an office, no other team leads do.
Everyone sits in a cube farm, but an office opened up and was offered to me. I would be the only other person in the area with an office outside the director.
What are the implications of accepting an office as a new team lead, when other team leads do not have one? It seems like it could come across poorly to others. What should I consider when determining if I should accept it?
All the leads (including myself) do similar work including making phone calls and having to meet with other teams/performance appraisals. We use the conf room if we want a private meeting. I think it was offered to me because if we don't use it another area will and I was the most recent promotion.
