Well, as you suggest, you don't want surprises from behind you while you are working. If you are not facing your cubicle entrance, get a mirror that’s just behind or beside your monitor. You might also want a mirror in front of you if your back faces the cubicle entrance way.
Any of these set-ups might work for you:
a. A desktop mirror with a stand if you desk has the space.
b. One that hangs from a cubicle shelf.
c. One  with double sided tape that sticks on a cubicle wall.
d. One that hangs from the edge of your cubicle divider.

You can order cubicle friendly mirrors at Staples or even Office Max. If you have a store close by, then pay them a visit. Or check their websites. If you order something online from Staple for example, they will send it to your local store for you to pickup and no delivery fee of any kind. I ordered a couple items from Staple that were only available online and not in the stores.

Here's a rear view cubicle mirror.
