You got a divider! Lucky sod.
Open plan offices suck, but they're here to stay because to work in a decent area, you have to pay more for the offices, and for many companies that is an undesirable situation. Most people can cope with background noise and hubbub, or use headphones to become totally unapproachable, you get distracted by the hot QA girl that walks by every so often which is a nice perk, etc.
It's a shame that most places don't use curved desks, so that the person behind you isn't directly behind you. Also the new thing seems to be about removing cabinets from desks, or moving to lockers. That's saving like fifty dollars, on a potentially $100k member of headcount.
They do work for overhearing things in your team that you can contribute to. But that would still work in a Team Lab space type office layout, with six to twelve people in a large room.
The days of individual offices, 10ft by 10ft or more, are over for most employees. At best you can hope for a 6ft by 8ft area. And that works partially because monitors are thin; you need 1/10th the paperwork and books and manuals you needed even ten years ago, never mind 20; no one ever prints so 2 printers can service an entire floor; and people are generally used to timewasting .... sorry, internet time, that they don't care if you do it as you would have done it in your cube.
