My company does have a dress code: business casual, which means no sneakers, jeans, shorts, T-shirts or anything denim. We are a financial company, not a technology company and we are in Maine where people tend to be a bit more conservative. When I first stated here four years ago, the dress code was stricter--business attire, guys had to wear shirts with a collar and a tie, no khakis allowed (yes, even the programmers). The president of the company finally yielded to a committee of employees and we went to the business casual. I don't mind the dress code because there is a fair amount of latitude. Some people dress up a bit more than others. Some directors and managers dress very casually and others wear suits. It can vary by department--Legal tends to be a bit more formal in their attire, the IT group very casual.
