I turned down a perl job last year at sportal.com because of the work environment in their london office. They had nearly 100 staff in one huge room. No partitions. No carpet. Telephones galore.

If there is one thing that guarantees I'll hate a job, it's noise level. Give me a quiet little dark corner with no traffic, and I'll work like a demon. Put me in a noisy room full of sales-type-people and I'll barely be able to concentrate enough to look at pr0n the sales-type-people are emailling me.
