    In the context of just a standard tech workplace I find it especially disgusting considering how much your average startup pushes "culture fit."

    Did you wear a tie to an interview? Too old school, bad culture fit.

    Have a southern accent? Not quite quick-talking enough, bad culture fit.

    Not a white or Asian male from a top 20 private engineering school? You might work here, but you're fighting an uphill battle against the Stanford/MIT/UMich kids.

    Total mysogynistic jerk? "Well, that's your personal life — we pride ourselves on maintaining a meritocracy! Welcome aboard."

      Summed up exactly what I was thinking. It should be "Culture Expansion" instead of "fit"
