I would like to ask a question about the work culture in the USA. In particular, I'd like to ask about an employee's respect for the company hierarchy. Do they have a lot of respect for their boss and his opinion and back off easily, or do they push their opinion hard even when their boss has clearly indicated that they should let it go.
There are a couple of issues I can see with this kind of question - it's broad because (1) people have different personalities and (2) within a specific country, each company's culture will vary wildly. This is why I haven't asked this question yet and have been thinking about how I will phrase it such that it's not too broad.
That said, entire countries do have certain cultures that can be generally applied to the entire country. Asian culture is an example of this, for example, in South Korea, campany heirarchy is very highly respected and people are very respectful of their superiors. That's an example of how an entire culture can be generalised.
Are questions about an entire country's work culture off topic here, purely because they are too broad? or is there scope for asking about a culture in general (for example, something like my question above)?
