Dafna Sarnoff worked her way up to vice president at American Express and what she remembers as “a desirable office.” Later she was hired by a financial services company — bigger salary, bigger office. Then, in 2012, she was recruited by Yodle, a smaller, newer company that sells online marketing tools for small businesses.
“I had heard about these tech start-ups that had these open office environments,” Ms. Sarnoff said. “I wondered if I was going to get an office.”
She did not, and on her first day on the job, she all but panicked. “I remember being led to my new desk and thinking, ‘Oh my God, this is going to take some getting used to.’ ”
