adj. Relating to a highly motivated employee who has few personal responsibilities and so can work long hours, travel frequently, or be called in to work with little notice.
The ideal zero-drag employee is young, unmarried and childless with no responsibilities and an eagerness to do well.
Everything is faster. Zero drag is optimal. For a while, new applicants would jokingly be asked about their 'drag coefficient.' Since the office is a full hour's commute from San Francisco, an apartment in the city was a full unit of drag. A spouse? Drag coefficient of one. Kids? A half point per.
In physics, drag refers to the resistance experienced by an object moving through a fluid medium (such as air). Zero drag is an ideal state where the object experiences no resistance at all, much like an eager, no-spouse, no-kids, no-pets employee.
