What I've Learned After Two Years in the Corporate World

In a corporate environment with open floor plans, cubicles with low divider walls, and glass-fronted meeting rooms, this symbol doesn't deter the use by able-bodied worker bees of the one* private space on the premises.

After two years of research (i.e., watching people emerge from said space as I happen to be entering or exiting the multistall loo across the hall), I've concluded that:

1) Men use it to take a dump. (Note to men: Using your iPad whilst doing your business is a risky business. Even with one of these.)

2) Women use it to cry.

*There's a private room without a crapper in it where new moms can pump (but you need a key for that one). Which is why corporate America is totally better than a small company, because they are considerate enough (a.k.a  required by law) to provide such amenities. There used to be a sweet icon on the door of a mom nursing her infant. But since the eight-week-old baby's in daycare and Mom's nursing a $400 milking machine and a resentment, they rebranded it the "wellness room," which I gather is a common term in the HR world for the lactation station.
