Crimes of the Cubicle: 15 Desk Don'ts

Don't Let a Messy Cubicle Interfere with Your Career

Excessive decorating

Yes, you practically live at your desk. But in reality, you don’t.

So skip the over-the-top seasonal decorations like the bobble head pumpkin man with glowing eyes and a menacing cackle, the musical snow globe that plays "The 12 Days of Christmas" any time someone walks by, your motivational "Valentine's Day Suck" poster... They'll work better as home décor -- or on the bargain table of your next garage sale.

Framed college diploma or professional awards? Yes. Stuffed tiger mascot that roars when you squeeze its big toe? Not so much.
