3 Introduction Jennifer Smith has joined Oswald Software Inc. as a Senior Software Tester. She has about three years of experience working as a Software Tester in her previous organization, Leonard Inc.

4 Introduction The people at Oswald followed very orthodox methods for working. There were very strict protocols for completing every task. The decision making power was vested in only a select few and the others had to just follow orders.

5 Introduction Jennifer found that only the people at the top of the hierarchical order had the power to make decisions and only they were authorized to take decisions. These powerful people also enjoyed special privileges at the workplace. They were the most important people at the workplace and were also the major decision makers.

6 Introduction Jennifer was finding it increasingly difficult to adjust to Oswald’s culture. At Leonard, her previous organization, the culture was much more open and friendly. Leonard’s culture was such that every employee was delegated roles and responsibilities according to his specialization, educational qualification and interest to extract the best out of him.

7 Introduction Jennifer tried her best to adjust to Oswald’s culture but she just could not adjust in a culture where she had to just follow orders. She was used to a more open culture where she could freely express her ideas and opinions to her superiors.

8 Introduction Finally, Jennifer gave up after trying for a year.
She decided that Oswald’s culture was just not something she could ever get used to and decided to quit her job at Oswald. For her next interview, she made sure that she found out about the organization’s culture from its current employees, the HR and the company website.
