Welcome to Our Company: Your Office Manual
Workman Pub., 1988 - Humor - 96 pages
It's us against them in the business world, and helping bewildered newcomers along the tricky steps of a career path is the wise and winsome Yolanda Nave's playful spoof of the corporate workplace. More than 100 full-color drawings with captions tell the story of the new employee, from the moment she's congratulated as the best-qualified candidate ("You wouldn't mind watering the plants once a week, would you?") to the day she joins the system--and is attacked by a printer gone berserk, stands unrecognized at meetings, and savors the thought of her Christmas bonus (little does she know it will be a piece of fruit).
No aspect of the workaday world is overlooked. Obscure laws of finance are gratefully demystified, such as the esoteric relationship between profits ("Sales are up and profits at an all-time high") and actual profit-sharing ("Now for the bad news. . . .") There's even a section on the six danger signs of coming stress.
Clever and witty, this (equal opportunity) office manual belongs on every desk, right between the white-out and the stack of reports due yesterday. 180,000 copies in print.
