    Is the Company Man a thing of the past?

    I believe that people have become increasingly aware through disappointment, redundancy and limited career options with trusting a corporate to manage their career and so this generation is doing it differently. Any views out there guys?

    I have met many company men in my life.  They still exist but most will change teams if they think it will advance their career.

    They still exist in being corporations... it's the only way to stay alive these days.  You have to be a "team player."  If you're not one of the in-crowd, you'll be the first to lose your job during a down-sizing or a buy-out.  Those are far more frequent now than they used to be.

    Short answer: yes, especially in the corporate world.
