Assessing Corporate Culture Quickly

Candidates often quiz me about the culture of a client company - as if it's easy to understand. It isn't. And, recently, I've met a number of bright, senior people who made a bad moves because they couldn't tell that their prospective employers had a leadership style or pace did not suit their own.

I'd like to create a checklist of questions an outsider can use to get a quick take on the indicators of a company's culture. If anyone has suggestions, please let us know.

Here are some articles on corporate culture.
