"It's claustrophobic," Campbell says. "Especially intrusive is the way Michael constantly peers out his office window, making workers feel that management is always looking over their shoulders. The artistic directors of this show really knew what they were doing to convey Dunder Mifflin as a struggling enterprise."
One executive is happy that the Dunder Mifflin regional office in Pennsylvania struggles. "Michael Scott is a perfect example of failing to use your resources well," says Chuck Rubin, president of North American retail for Office Depot. odpRubin continues: "Michael doesn't have the knowledge or leadership skills to be running an office effectively. Of course, since Dunder Mifflin could be considered among our competitors, I think Michael Scott is actually the perfect person to run their Scranton office."
