If they are loaded with Harvard MBAs, most likely a megacorp.

megac*rps will embark on "safety" crusades in which they photograph a piece of pizza on an employee's desk, ensuring to capture a picture of the employee on the desk so everyone will know who it is. they then send out a note to the entire department to let everyone know it is not "safe" to leave their "lunch" out on their desk and that everyone should "keep food in the refrigerator."

when the employee states they feel parts of their private life were exposed which they do not wish to share or have their co-workers know about, they are told they "are reading too much into it." and that they shouldn't bother the "manager" about his safety crusade.

anyone need a petroleum engineer?

I have been employed by a Megacorp only once. They were actually in negotiations to sell the company around the time I was hired.
The company was finally sold within the year, they came in sucked our brains for months, the corporate offices were moved elsewhere and then we were all fired.

Think "Dilbert". If you need a definition of "Megacorp", you probaby never worked for one.

Me thinks they not so bad after all!!!
I also agree with the comments by RockyMtn.
I know I have been fortunate to w**k for a MegaCorp. 33.5 years non-stop with no regrets. I have been called lucky but I know that I "made my own luck". Now I am 22 days from leaving it all behind and I still like all of the people there and the MegaCorp is still going strong and treating the employees well with good benefits and salary and safe working conditions.
I'm the Anomaly and I recognize that.

Officially retired........Class of 2011
