Stanley Bing has been reporting on corporate life since his own first bullshit job back in 1982, which isn’t that different than the bullshit job he has now, only back then it was smaller. He is now an ultra-senior executive in a gigantic corporation whose identity is one of the worst-kept secrets in business, which is a joke he’s been using for the last 10 years because he has always believed that if a specific piece of bullshit is effective, it’s often smart to stay with it.
Beginning back at Esquire magazine in 1984, Bing moved to Fortune in 1995, and now occupies the back page of that no-bullshit publication. He is the author of several business-humor books, including the best-selling What Would Machiavelli Do?, Throwing The Elephant, The Big Bing, Sun Tzu Was A Sissy, and Rome Inc. In addition, he has written two novels ’ Lloyd: What Happened and You Look Nice Today, both of which have been going through years of bullshit development in Hollywood.
