I once oversaw several thousand sweat shop workers in Thailand. I had to use the lobby as my office and there wasn't a door. Does that count?

If a person worked in a large company, is it the company employment? The number of people in the building? The number of people within the same floor/entrance/room? The number of people a person could see by standing up? By standing on their chair? The number of people a person could touch without walking through a door? I need some more instruction.

What about when I was a pimp in Chicago? Do I get to count the whole city? I used my Lincoln as my office.

Game over.

Close the thread.

The number of people working in the entire office building, regardless of company.

So...the number of people working under the same roof, regardless of who they work for?

Why would you care in the first place?

I think one of the buildings I worked in in the defense industry had 5,000 to 6,000 people in it. At least, that's how many got laid off when they canceled the project.

Ive worked in the pentagon for 2 weeks, which has about 20,000+ people working at any given time

Without thorough DNA testing, I wouldn't even venture a guess.

I'm asking because the largest building I've worked in had about 30 workers before this new job. I estimate that somewhere between 1500-3000 people work in this office. Its nuts.

I worked one summer at the 1.7 million square foot Hallmark distribution center... not sure how many people but I'd wager quite a few. Also worked in the largest Dell building in Round Rock... ton of people there as well.

I see, that's a big jump. Hope you're a people person.

It would be a good career move for you Buck to make sure you get to know everyone.

My wife worked at General Dynamics' Mile-Long Assembly Plant in her younger days. I went there for work, and it was neat to see. They had bicycles for people to ride if they had to travel any distance along it.

I think the assembly plant I worked on had a similar square footage, but it was squarish in shape and so wasn't anywhere close to a mile long.

I work in what was formerly GD's corporate office. It has since been taken over by the company I work for.

I have never, and could never, work in an office environment. I'd rather be the guy that goes out and gets the real work done.

I once went to a Michigan football game and returned a couple emails via my phone. Can I consider that my office for those 2 minutes? If so, 108,000 people.

If I don't do my job, people can't get medical care, which could ultimately lead to death. It makes my job a little stressful.

Information I probably should have read before voting.

Up to 2500 for me, maybe more but not sure about that. Def over 1000.

1,000+ I guess? Maybe over 2500. It's really two buildings side-by-side. Full service coffee shop. Cafeteria with a sandwich shop, hot food counter that usually has two or three different entrees (like fish, chicken, lasagna), hamburger and fries counter, different soups every day etc.

I had a crew of 50 once. It was the worse time of my life. I ended up being a shrink for my employees.

I have since changed careers. Operate an office of four full time and and two part time people. We work hard and play hard. It's amazing what a small dedicated group can accomplish.

Things are a little stale, so I'm about to tackle something else. I can't wait.
