Where is your team lead at?

Corporate went to Alabama to run with the big wigs.

Really? Why?

Who knows, that son of a bitch always has his lips locked on someone at the top's ass.

Whenever I hear the word corporate, I get the image of indoctrinated people working on bog standard computers within an eternal sea of cubicles. Each individual works continually with no expression. They simply do the job they are assigned to. They have no personal identity, only a corporate identity. Every aspect of their being has been conditioned so they are only compatible within a corporate environment. Every aspect of their lives is an extensive marketing campaign. They eat at McDonald's. They drink at Starbucks. They sleep on furniture made by IKEA. They are part of an entity which continues to destroy until there is nothing else, all for the sole purpose of generating profit. And somewhere deep inside these people is the underlying truth that somewhere down the line they lost their humanity, and became supporters of the institutions that destroyed it...

Someone who was once considered 'fun' before they entered the working world, but who is now 'boring'. Most often found when people leave university for an office job, shedding their enjoyable social skin, and donning a far less interesting one. These people obtain the 'corporate' prefix infront of their name.

The spouse, in the sense that she would need to approve a purchase, trip, or activity.
Man, I was going to get that 47-inch Sony flat screen, but Corporate would only sign off on a 32-inch Hitachi.

Sorry, Corporate didn't approve the Vegas weekend. Go on without me.
