in reply to Biggest clue you don't want the job you're offered

I turned down a perl job last year at 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.

    I worked in that Sportal office for three months last year. It wasn't the environment that put me off, but the fact the management weren't particularly clued up. How much confidence can you have in a company that uses StoryServer as its content management system?

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
