Why do you have to hand them a copy of a magazine that is at every station in your manicure salon?

Because that's where I get all my magazines.

If I had my own company, it would likely be one dealing with land use planning, landscape architecture, and economic development. Since the vast majority of our clients would be cities/villages/township and county governments, and quite a bit of the work on site would involve being outside and possibly at a construction site, the dress code would probably be something very basic like: chinos, collared shirt, rubber-soled boots or shoes. If your role keeps you in the office all day, chinos and collared shirt would be the minimum there as well. If you are meeting with community officials or making a public presentation at a council or planning commission meeting maybe a blazer/sportcoat with tie optional. When dealing with the public, i.e. taxpayers, the last thing you want to do is show up to a city council meeting in a meticulously tailored suit (especially in a smaller, rural community or a blue-collar suburb) and give the impression that you are overcharging for your services.

I could swear that this was lifted from an old 30's movie like the Thin Man with Ronald Coleman but I can't find a cite.

^ These, if you're running a software-based startup. I, for one, cannot think of a single successful startup that enforced any sort of dress code.

Just a hint: coders are cheaper in India, and they do not require Mountain Dew.

Same with lawyers.

Is there a reason why the OP insisted on capitalizing the word "Firm" in every usage, by the way? Is this hypothetical firm the sort that would employ, say, Wilford Brimley to chase down and antagonize Tom Cruise?

 

If so, I'm on board.

Perhaps it's Firm, as in a gang of criminals or football hooligans? The Kray Twins are often referred to as "The Firm"

I would add this to the dress code:

- No crew neck undershirts if you're wearing a button down with no tie.bigstar[1].gif

What kind of cleaning policies would you titans institute governing usage of the employee snack and lunch fridges? Would responsibilities rotate among all users, or in cases in which the employee has posted in this thread, would the responsibility be presumptively assigned to him punitively?

Also, would fish or fragrant ethnic foods be allowed for reheating in the microwaves? Oh, like a fish curry or anything Koreans eat?

Finally, would you limit lanyard lengths to above crotch level, or is a low, low hang okay?

I'm asking because we're developing some rules for Styleform that will go into effect next week.

Thanks.

Easy... if your company monitors Internet usage. Whoever goofed off the most for the week gets to clean the following week.

Unfair! Korean, Indian, and Thai are 90% of my diet. Forbid those and someone will demand likewise for buttery popcorn and stinky burritos. And have you ever caught a whiff off those Lean Cuisine frozen microwave dinners? Vile.
