Laminate floor layout

Our hallway is an L shape and the installer has laid the laminate floor in the configuration shown in the diagram below.
I would like to know if it is ok for the tiles that have been placed in a non staggered format to remain that way? Each tile covers the whole width of the room and because of this the installer says it is structurally fine. What would the ideal pattern and layout be, both structurally and aesthetically? Any advice would be appreciated.

There is nothing wrong with that layout other than it sort of looks odd having full planks, no ends, then full lengths.

My hardwood floors have random lengths so that configuration is not really possible! I would have probably mixed it up some!

What is the distance between joints at the top of the L? The instructions that came with my laminate flooring stated no joints should be closer than 12"
