      Dunder Mifflin in real world...

      Pros

      Great work life balance - office is a ghost town after 4 pm. You’ll be surrounded by characters from Dunder Mifflin.

      Cons

      Takes forever(5 years or more) to get promoted. Very bureaucratic. External consultants are valued more than your own people. Information systems is a support organisation, drives no real value for the business. HR team doesn’t know how to file a visa. ZERO diversity. And oh - there is a re-org every 3 years because the leadership has no other real work to do.
