Advice to the corporate acolyte

Friday, 7 February 2003

Upon entering the world of corporate America there is only a single piece of advice I feel every initiate should be given and take as a grail.

Get yourself a micro-cassette recorder and tape record every conversation you have with your manager.

It is simply amazing how fast memories and communications improve when confronted with proof of the veiled threats, badgering sighs, insinuated chauvinism, and menacing tones that look so very innocuous on the written page of a legal document.

update/nota bene: This satirical advice is illegal in many states.
