I remember reading that people act out organisational cultures. I found the UK and France worst for this, people just take themselves far too seriously, perhaps the US is similar. I guess this presents problems for us as we are desperately looking for our real selves but at work we have to put on a corporate face, well that has always been a problem for me.  :'(
