Do all agencies/consultancies have totally insufficient meeting room space? Is that just an industry wide phenomenon?

Remember, an open office promotes collaboration. Everywhere is a conference room.

👆100%... open space = need more conference rooms. When there were offices you could meet inside the offices.

I am currently in 3 different email threads with various coworkers haggling over conference room holds. One of them has devolved into everyone having to say how many people are attending the meeting. It's bonkers.

it’s an open floor plan thing. Directors + at my current shop have private offices - takes a huge burden off the conference rooms. Never a problem getting a room. Same at my prior shop - plenty of rooms. Shop prior to that was an open floor plan and half the rooms were taken by SVPs squatting.

It costs the same rent for a conf room as it does for human seating space, but you can't bill a client by the square foot. You can only bill for people. And if the overhead on people goes down because of open seating plans, well, the agency is printing money. They think. Idiots.
