    Anyone else old enough to remember pre-cubicle office layouts?

    Both straight-up bullpens of juniors' desks in grids facing the desk of the boss... to semi-partitioned "individual" or group "offices" made of drywall and glass partition panels?

    I never worked in a grid bullpen, but I did have job interviews in places like that. By the 1970s those were often lorded over by some ex-military guy. Programmers served a month or two of the year as "operations" staff keypunching from coding sheets, hanging tapes, tearing off and separating and filing printer output, sweeping and emptying trash, etc.



    Recently visited a place I retired from over a decade ago. Sort of back to bullpens and multicubes, but now all standing desks and only very limited storage and filing space and one tiny bookshelf. Egad.

    Want to sit? Er, is it your break? Moo!

    I never encountered something like so at work and frankly it looks pretty doom and scary.
    However at some public sector offices (that the last renovation have been done since, never), yeah I've seen some of the iron desks and they look way worse than those that the video shows.
    Thankfully when I worked at public sector the building was relatively new so we had casual desks but when I visited peripheral buildings "I've seen some stuff that would turn you white", or black, depending.

    For much of my career men working in an office were expected to wear a white shirt, necktie, and dress slacks every day. I think that began to change around 1990 or so.

    The song was from 1983 and written for the movie "National Lampoon's Vacation" but most of the beginning scenes where Clark Griswold's office was shown got cut. Even by 1983 the music video's office environment was getting dated. Part of that was rapid changes going on after the story was first written, part was intentional throwback to emphasize how grim the daily grind was for Clark.
