I’ve worked at places with really good corporate cultures, and some not so good (a huge national advertising agency comes to mind). I worked for one of the not so good ones one summer that had this ridiculous testosterone-overdrive culture where if you didn’t challenge the CEO for his job, you were weak and a loser. It was as though it was run by the preppy football jerks in Revenge of the Nerds–really over the top. But nothing has ever come close to working for a city government office. I think they need to create a new word for the corporate culture there–negative 10 times over just doesn’t paint a picture ugly enough.
