I've had my own office (well shared with one other), cubes with low partitions, and full cubes that extend upwards of 6ft with the partitions.

Sharing the office wasn't bad - I had a massive desk, but me and the other analyst I shared it with you weren't super close friends. We'd shoot the shit, but it was pretty boring as everyone else at the company was old and there was nobody to interact with on a daily basis. Culture was terrible and one of the worst jobs I ever had.

Low partition cubes was ok. The issue is now that everyone uses Teams, everyone is on a call all day. I got to hear everyone talking for 8 hours a day, and there is no privacy. I wasn't a big fan, and you also were able to talk to others easily (this can be good or bad). Lots of just office talk which can get annoying.

Classic cube with high divisions has been my favorite from a work standpoint. Tough to shoot the shit with this, but I'm so busy it doesn't matter. Can still hear people on calls, especially since some people are extremely loud, but it's not as bad as the low cubes

I agree, while I'm not looking for ten thousand identical cubicles and fluorescent lighting, I think a hybrid approach to a mid-level partition can be the best. I got my own office for the first time in my life about a week ago, and while it's beyond nice to have my own personal space, I can kind of feel detached from the chatter out there - it's much harder to shoot the shit w/ coworkers. 

When I was an analyst at my last job, the office was a little... too... open. I'm talking like, zero partitions, elbow-to-elbow with people next to me and in front of me. That was when the whole 'coworking' thing got really big and hip and my office decided that they were going to push for it without any consolidation. I'm all for being in an open environment, but sometimes I just need five minutes of privacy so I can call someone and have them hear ME, not my coworkers yelling across the room about the Nats losing again. I think a solid mix of the two goes very well.
