"Hilarious! Great read! Quick, easy and loads of laughs! Smart and insightful. A breath of fresh air." These are just some of the accolades for Corporate Crap: Lessons Learned from 40 Years in Corporate America. The book takes a humorous look at all the business practices that cause employees to look for new employment. Things like meetings, performance reviews, downsizing, and bosses from hell; competing for wall offices or asking if it's okay to leave early; dress codes, task forces, brainstorming and engagement surveys; flip charts, org charts, hard stops, and hard-ons. In Corporate Crap, readers will learn:
• How companies are trying to shorten meetings by making everyone stand and other forms of torture.
• Why 700 million vacation days went unused last year. (What is wrong with you people?)
• Why companies don't call employees "employees" anymore.
• Why the idea that "no idea is a bad idea" is a bad idea.
• What people really do during conference calls.
Companies invest enormous resources to improve their "corporate cultures," yet employees are as cynical and unengaged as ever. There are lessons to be learned here – lessons learned from 40 years of Corporate Crap.
