We can turn to many different outlets to get an idea of what working in an office is like. There are countless articles written about how to navigate office life as well as many TV shows and movies we can watch that take place in offices – offering us a glimpse into what the office environment might be like.

Our previous blog post ‘TV shows with an Office Setting‘ provided a look at a few fantastic modern shows that gave us insight into the office setting. Today we want to continue this series and provide you with ’10 Films Set in an Office’ to help give you an (exaggerated) look at what it may be like to work in an office environment.

Just remember, none of the movies should be copied, they may be more of a guide to what not to do in an office, but are fun to watch all the same.
