The RoundPegg story is similar for each of us. We've all seen the effect that people have on one another within the work environment and how quickly a culture can become destructive.
Finding a great culture where you fit is difficult. A good culture for you is one where you perform at your best more days than not, where you trust your teammates and work doesn't feel so much like work.
