in reply to Least favorite non-geek(s) at my job:

I like nearly all my coworkers, but there's a couple of guys in sales...ugh. M. has no volume control and no sense of humor. He is a loud, angry man, and I don't quite know how he managers to actually sell anything; I guess our product really is just that good. P. is his boss, and relatively new, but has already gotten off on the wrong foot with our department by taking over the cubespace that was supposed to be ours. It was laid out so we would not be shoulder-surfable and could see when people walk up to us. But the space allotted to sales wasn't good enough for him, so we got the boot. Now we make do with mirrors. B. in marketing can be kind of loud and obnoxious, too, but pales in comparison with the others.

In the end, though, if the worst I have to complain of is a few loudmouths, I'd say it's a great workplace. The other folks in sales and marketing are great. Almost everyone here is a geek of some sort, right up to the exec level.
