A formerly successful company, founded on forward-thinking methods during the Dotcom boon, now running into the ground due to uncreative, boring middle-management business types who chase their tails in search of profits. In other words, the opposite of a think tank.
"This game company used to be great place to work: we had a big open work area where we brainstormed, tested out what we were working on and had Margarita Thursdays. Then the new boss (she used to manage a call center) put up a wall in the center of the room and told us we aren't allowed to play video games during company time. We used to make money, now we just stress about meeting internal goals; We went from think tank to $tink tank.”
