That’s right, we’re talking about Fight Club. In Episode 3, we compare the employee experience at the film’s nameless (and soulless) automotive recall agency with life-affirming (though violent) Fight Club/Paper Street Soap Company/Project Mayhem. We are Jack’s detached interest in:
Company Purpose and Mission
Startup Culture and the Myth of the Founder
Hierarchical vs. Flat/Autonomous Organizations
Onboarding and Cultural Norms
Mental Health in the Workplace
Fight Club. Dir. David Fincher. Perf. Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, Helena Bonham Carter. Fox 2000 Pictures, Regency Enterprises, 20th Century Fox. 1999.
