In this paper we address the need of the extention of social network analysis from online social networks to companies. We conducted an analysis in a german research facility and analyzed the network in several dimensions. While we found that inside the work groups were no problems easy to spot we found that the communication between the groups was pretty low. Aside from this fact the facility in question has a working communication network.
