    Stagnant company - very routine, very structured, each one got his own role to play, not expecting any promotion or rather, there ain't any corporate ladder to climb. Just get your job done. Good place to be at when you're just a few years before retirement. Found a few good friends here, both male and female.

    I guess it depends very much on the environment, on the ambiance in your office.
    Weird, I experienced something opposite from yours.

    When company down-sizing, meaning the company's condition is very bad. Everyone suffered. From that suffering, bonds are built.

    At civil service, there are competitions actually. In fact, more politics. From that pool of politics, where's the friendship?

    interesting topic. yes u can make good friends along the way even in your workspace. However sometimes due to politics from colleagues or management makes it harder to know whether the person is trustworthy or true to you. by saying that, true friends can still be found, provided your own behavior and character are good at people eyes.
