Re: Dress code

Where did you find this Rob?  I find it hilarious.

 

What if, as a woman, I don't own a pant suit or heels?  Does that mean I can never be a pen tester? 

 

I love stuff like this, gives me my evening giggle.

Re: Dress code

I used to work for a company that had a policy for employees to be two orders of dress smarter than th ecustomer - they are in jean you’re in chinos, they get the Chinos you’re in pressed Woolen Business pants with a faint pinstripe.

 

Naturally no one ever did this, but there were lost of amusing time wasting conversations on the inevitable custome in full formal business attire that you then need you need to find a tux or ceremonial uniform of some sort... the cleverest guy on one of the projects looked like Keith from the Progidy, funnily enough no one ever told him off about it...

Originally on Twitter. It seems to be out of some official ECSA manual or
training guide.

Hey, you're a girl. Of course you can't be a pen tester. Or any other tech worker,
either :-)

(Did you see Jack's post on the CISSPforum about heels keeping you up off the
ground and away from bugs? :-)

As part of one consulting job I was temporarily managing a customer tech support
department. The CEO was really bugged about one of the support guys (they were
all guys) wearing jeans. (I mean, it was *phone* support. I had dealt with one call
soaking wet after I cycled in through the rain.) But I asked the worker if he would,
as a favour, please wear slacks, and he did.

God and universal benevolence, yet they rest well satisfied of
their salvation and are pleased to think they may enjoy the world
as much as they can while they live and have heaven in reserve
when they die. - Susanna Wesley

Re: Dress code

LOL - I've been out in the field on installs and had my sponsor call me and say that Admiral So and So just came on base and wants to see your presentation. I'm standing there in my shorts and Tommy Bahama shirt and sandals (it's San Diego-heaven on earth). I tell my sponsor of my attire and he doesn't care!  

The stuffiest place on earth to work is Washington, D.C. everyone wears suits and ties. My current customer wears ties in a research facility-it's dirty, lots of electronics and machinery and nasty stuff. They frown on my TB shirts! LOL

 

We had a saying back home in farm country-if a barn needs painting paint it.  If you need to wear fancy clothes to hide other issues go for it.

 

Way too much is focused on outward appearance and not the character and talents inside.

I’m sure when the right time comes we’ll all be “sensibly dressed in ankle/wrist length woolen gowns and leather weather helms”.

Back when EDS was still an independent company owned by Ross Perot (pre-GM), Ross was famous for keeping the old IBM dress code of full suits, white shirts, and ties for all engineers, even after IBM relaxed their own rules. EDS had a major systems management and maintenance contract at the headquarters of the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), about a mile from the Pentagon. I was working on a project with several of the EDS staff at that time.

 

The three-star general Director of DISA had an all-hands meeting at the headquarters. While seated in the first row of the gathering, he had a deep discussion on DISA policy items with the several suited men (yes, all male) near him, assuming they were all senior executives of DISA due to their dress.  Later in the day, one of his senior executives told him the third guy down was an EDS contract engineer. 

 

The general directed his contracting office to notify EDS that from then on, all engineers would NOT wear suits to work. My EDS buddies were ecstatic, and from then on wore polo shirts and khakis to work, much better for crawling around server rooms, dragging cables, and slipping between racks to deal with the equipment.
