Company Fat is a term used to describe personnel and/or policies that are unnecessary for a company to operate. Most of the time, the company fat causes a decrease in operating effectiveness and efficiency. Much like body fat, too much Company Fat can cause the arteries of a company to clog, ultimately hitting its bottom line (the heart).

Angela: But we don't keep two sets of books.
Michael: Well, that's not what I'm saying. Just, you know, find it. Pretend that your jobs depend on it.
