Weekend Quote from a Book - Working for a Large Company
One of the disconcerting parts of working in a large company is that you often get caught up in a frenzy of activity doing things that don’t have a direct bearing on the real world.

The epitome of meaningless corporate work is the 1999 movie comedy Office Space. The main character Peter is increasingly frustrated, and eventually pushed to the brink of sanity, by the amount of time and management effort used to ensure he uses a certain cover sheet on his “TPS Report.”

The larger organizations get, the greater their capacity for doing work that is not directly related to anything in the real world. Or, in an equally frustrating outcome, months of work are scrapped as a new company is acquired, or changes vendors, or gets a new CEO with a diff erent vision from his predecessor.
