GENEVA, Switzerland, Feb. 27 (UPI) -- A study by Switzerland's Logitech International has found most U.S. working people are not happy with the cubicle that passes for office space these days.

The computer peripherals company's survey of 1,003 U.S. offices worker found 42 percent of them graded their work space design a C, CNET News reported.

Another 10 percent rated their cubicle or office a D, and 4 percent gave it an F. Only 6 percent gave their space an A.

Lack of privacy was the top annoyance cited by those surveyed. Other irksome features mentioned by many included "not enough shelves to put things", "no window" and "too much clutter."

Those surveyed spent an average of 37.5 hours a week in their workspace.

"Whether because of clutter, lack of personal input, or poor computer systems, U.S. office workers are often displeased or see room for improvement with the state of their workspace," Brenda Batenburg, senior manager of market research for Logitech, said.
