Uh oh looks like someone has a case of the corporates

While every work culture likes to dress up mundane tasks and concepts with fancy language, acronyms and jargon, there is something particularly annoying about corporate culture. I think the blog King of the Cubicle captures it in this post on the odious term "secret sauce."

Most job oriented jargon is meant to serve the purpose of excluding outsiders and making a task seem more significant or challenging. Corporate jargon is worse than most because it tends to confuse in it's attempt to be "sexy."
