Open-plan offices have become very popular in recent years and they seem to be the go-to option for most tech companies, especially in Silicon Valley. Some companies, like Facebook and Netflix, even tout that not even their CEO has an office.

Small startups, large corporations, and co-working spaces all jumped on the bandwagon.
