* ''Series/TheITCrowd'': Our leads work at Reynholm Industries, which is nothing more than "A lot of sexy people, not doing much work and having affairs!". Nobody knows what Reynholm actually ''does'', and 99% of the employees know how to turn on a computer, let alone plug it in.

** Hyperion under the employ of [[BigBad Handsome Jack]] is far worse. He treat his human workers and the robotic Loaders as expendable pawns, builds a city near an area teeming with bandits, Threshers, and Stalkers, and is willing to resurrect an ancient alien {{Kaiju}} not knowing or caring that he'd eventually lose total control of it and possibly let it loose on the people of Pandora. As shown in ''Videogame/TalesFromTheBorderlands'', middle-management is filled with cutthroat douchebags obsessed with idolizing Jack as well as screwing each other over for a promotion and [[KlingonPromotion killing for said promotion]] is a popular practice.

%% * The company (Initech) Initech in ''Film/OfficeSpace''.''Film/OfficeSpace'' is a prime example- bloated, uncaring management, unhappy employees, and a general sense of gloom- indeed, Lumbergh abuses Milton for no real reason. Thankfully, they get their LaserGuidedKarma- Milton ends up GoingPostal and burning the office down.

** Apu is competent enough running Kwik-E-Mart, but the BigDamnMovie shows that he is not above altering expiration dates on expired products in order to improve his profit margin.

** In "Homer The Smithers", Smithers decides to take a vacation. He decides to select the plant's stupidest and most incompetent employee to fill his role, so that Mr. Burns won't replace him. When Smithers goes through the company database, he finds that every single one of the plant's 734 employees match the negative descriptions he inputs. Finally, Smithers randomly picks Homer.

* Weyland-Yutani corp in ''Franchise/{{Alien}} movies'', despite being a powerful MegaCorp that has its own private army and hundreds of other personnel has spent a great deal of effort in capturing the xenomorphs, which usually ends with the xenomorphs running loose and killing everyone in their facilities.

** the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation is every single trait of one of these turned UpToEleven. The Complaints Department ("Share and Enjoy") occupies ''all the major landmasses of three planets'' and is the only profitable part of the company. The popularity of its products is {{justified}}, in a PlayedForLaughs kind of way.

%% * Grace Brothers in ''Series/AreYouBeingServed''.



* ''Series/AreYouBeingServed'' has Grace Brothers as the main setting. It is a declining old fashioned British department store run by two doddering old men whose managerial practices are hopelessly out of touch with reality while the staff continually bicker among themselves in petty rivalries for privileges and sales quotas.

* Alpha Team's training program was depicted this way in ''Alpha Team: Ogel's Last Stand''. [[Film/MontyPythonsTheMeaningOfLife Their "training" consisted of a Drill Sergeant who spent all his time forcing people to march "up and down the square]] or [[Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus brutally abusing recruits in an effort to teach them how to defend themselves against fresh fruit. Meanwhile their other programs included a "complaints" department with lessons on complaining, and lessons on being hit on the head.]] They seem to have gotten their act together by the time of the ''[[Roleplay/DinoAttackRPG Dino Attack]]'', though.

* It took multiple zombie virus outbreaks caused by the ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'''s Umbrella Corporation before the shareholders finally bailed and the company got shut down.
* Atlas in VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}. While it does make good-quality firearms like the Atlas Chimera Revolver™, Kyros' Spear™, its soldiers are competent, and it can effectively build colonies on planets, its management is idiotic. How much? A five-year-old admiral is put in charge thanks to "Goddamn Nepotism," it's full of cheerful and pointless ComedicSociopathy, and the propaganda department is full of card carrying villainy.
