Hi,
What is the meaning of a "corporate subdivision" in this paragraph:
"Lena is always disappointed anew at the room, where instead of bald, bespectacled fat men typing with one heavy hand and reaching into the drawer for the bourbon bottle with the other, it is the usual corporate subdivision: well-medicated activity, soundless keypads, and clusters of low-partitioned cubicles in a rectangle that spans the
entire floor."
Thanks!

    It sounds like the author is describing the work environment. Way back when (like in the movies from the 50s) people had big offices and big desks. Now many office environments have an open floor plan, which is what the author describes here.
    That's my sense of it. Anyone else?
