Ten Movie Offices Worse Than Yours | Working Girl (1988)
Working Girl (1988)

Sector: Mergers & Acquisitions
Boss: Katharine Parker (Sigourney Weaver)
Employee: Tess McGill (Melanie Griffith)

A hymnal to Wall Street from the time when people were still writing hymns about it, Working Girl is the rags-to-extreme-riches tale of stockbroker’s PA Tess McGill (Griffiths) and her attempts to make it in investment banking. OK, so Griffinomics involves buying companies, getting it on with Harrison Ford and using enough hairspray to blast a hole in the Ozone Layer, but heck, she’s a whole bunch nicer that her boo-hiss boss Katharine Parker (Weaver). Anything goes at a place which tolerates ideas being stolen, women getting sleazed over (Kevin Spacey, again) and backs stabbed, all in the name of baron greenback. On a positive note, no-one seems to be selling mortgage-backed securities here.

HR warning:
