Why do company culture initiatives feel like marketing exercises?

  • 4
    That's what they are.
    They're selling you the idea of loyalty to the company in exchange for cheap food, cheap plastic cups, gimmicks like beer-hour fridays, and forced socialization. It makes you feel guilty if you don't buy into the idea (read: lie) because everyone else seems to.

    You know what else does this? Cults.

    @Root Another point of such brainwashing initiatives is to find heretics, usually disguised as "being open for constructive criticism". See James Damore what happens next.

    @Root "Yeah, those don't have to pay taxes while making so much money! They're even more of a scam! Wait, I meant churches..."
