Are you a Corps?

What is a Corps?

corps \KORPS\,pronoun

1. A corps is an employee of the largest, faceless, nameless company\organization\government in the world.

2. A corps values work at an unremarkable company as long as it is 'good, steady, secure employment' where attendance, loyalty and conformity are carefully measured and rewarded.

3. A corps is concerned about their supervisor, rank, pay grade, temperature, lighting, insurance copayments, breakroom amenities, noise level, bathroom breaks, reimbursements, training, performance reviews, deductions, seating, documentation and cubicle height.

4. A corps shuns work in sales, marketing, or product development. [Exceptions are made for products which have not changed in several years].

5. A corps really likes processes, acronyms, forms, duplicates, triplicates, key cards, mid-level titles and rank.

6. A corps identifies and labels everyone as belonging to one of two camps - management and labor.

7. A corps has no problem with limited or 'locked-down' Internet access and/or phone systems.

8. A corps does not like change unless it is accompanied by mandatory training, documentation and a wage increase upon completion.

9. A corps does not like to 'rock the boat' - that particular function is handled by a labor representative or supervisor who carefully records their grievances and follows up in a timely fashion.

10. A corps dutifully uses every sick, personal and vacation day available to their particular ranking within a fixed year.

Are you a corps? Does it describe you? Does it sound like the place you work?
