    ...sometimes culture is bullshit. Culture is bullshit when a company thinks that having a ping pong table makes up for overbearing and demeaning management.

Culture is bullshit when misguided engineers take pleasure in forcing interview candidates to experience as uncomfortable an interview experience as possible to feed their own egos. Perhaps a more apt wording is that in our industry, culture is often bullshit.
