Keep in mind that on the show, the bridge was not facing forward, but at an angle*, so that the turbolift bubble could be directly behind the bridge, yet not directly behind the Captain's back.

See this page for more detail. http://www.ottens.co.uk/forgottentrek/tos_1.php
(check the numbered links at the bottom of the article) - pay special attention to how the deck-1 plan compares to the deck-2 plan.

*- this also explains why any time the ship got hit dead-on with anything, the crew would go flying to one side
