American people make very universal and formal workers. They plan everything and tend to never change their schedule. They are always looking for effectiveness and efficiency at work by imposing one way to resolve a problem and applying it everywhere in the company at any time or any place. Furthermore, they are very punctual and report to work or to an appointment, on time. The hierarchical distance in an American organization, is not very high, so that an employee and his superior can apparently be close but there is a line that must not be crossed. American people have neutral and rational attitudes. My relation with my superior and even with my colleague has been strictly professional and never personal. At the beginning of my trip, it was very difficult to establish a good relationship with the other employees because of this problem. Because they have a limited culture, there is a cleavage between the personal and professional life. Each individual has a personal space and life which must not be intruded into. The employees must imperatively deal with themselves, without having possibilities for, or recourse to a collective system of authority.
