A Rare Look At Meg Whitman's Cubicle

Back in February, we reported on all the things that HP CEO Meg Whitman was doing to change the elitist executive culture that had sprouted since the days of Carly Fiorina. For instance, she made executives give up their fancy corner offices and move into ordinary cubicles, just like the rank and file.

That’s a bow to the startup culture in Silicon Valley, where CEOs tend to work at desks in open, shared spaces just like everyone else.

But HP wouldn’t give us a peek of Whitman’s now-famous cubicle. Until now.

As part of an interview with NBC’s Today Show, Whitman gave NBC’s Anne Thompson a tour of her workspace.
