This Office Mahabharata piece sent by my daughter is good. 

Office Mahabharata
=====================

Dronacharya – The Mentor. The employee who doesn’t like working himself but is always ready to guide and train new joiners.

Bhishma – The Loyal. The employee in a relatively senior position who happily assists the boss in spite of knowing his incompetence (because of some strange oath maybe)

Dhritarashtra – The blind boss. He knows that everything is wrong with his project but will still let it function, without making any changes to the current processes

Gandhari – The Yesmen/Women. Boss’s immediate juniors who know that they are a part of an evil plan but will stay blindfolded and pretend as if nothing is happening

Yuddhisthira – The ethical guy. Poor chap would never fudge timesheets and call in sick only when he is dying

Bheema – The angry resource. Always ready to pick up a fight with his peers, subordinates or even the bosses

Arjuna – The cool dude. The star performer who also knows how to sell his skills. A natural charmer, very famous among the ladies

Nakul & Sahdev – The good average resource. No one notices them. They keep doing their work and get average appraisals

Duryodhana – The Bully. Knows how to get work done, by hook or by crook. Doesn’t mind threatening the likes of Nakul and Sahdev to get his work done.

Karna – The unsung hero. The best performer in the office but never claims credit for his work. Stays an unsung hero for all his life. Girls take him for a snobbish nerd.

Shakuni – The evil plotter. Copies management in every mail. Escalates every trivial issue, sometimes to take credits and sometimes purely for fun

Dhristadyumna – The One inning wonder. The one who performs an extraordinary feat, and then basks in the glory of it for the rest of his life.

Draupadi – The shared resource. Keeps hopping projects on boss’s advice

Krishna – The Ultimate Boss (PM/CTO/CEO) who knows that it is his game while he makes everyone believe that they are playing important roles too
