I am looking to make a list of movies about work, preferably in an office setting.

So far I pick

Office Space and 9 to 5.

The TV show The Office is certainly applicable, no? If not, then hey - at least it's been mentioned and no-one else will look foolish by posting it in the thread...

Well, it may be applicable.. if it wasn't a TV show and not a two hour movie. ;)

"Rudy" is all about work and the perseverance to survive in life!
"All The Right Moves" to some extent.
"Death of A Salesman" with Dustin Hoffman
the beginning of "The Matrix"

there's a documentary about some, maybe 2, Silicon Valley guys, who get huge and then not so huge. Can't think of the name, but that was pretty good.

"Network"

it really depends on what work you are talking about, I mean the statement is so general. It could be manual labor or office work or working with chimps like "Gorillas in the Mist"

I could go on forever, but I'm hungry.

After seeing the last cover Perkinsun Dzees posted above, I thought of this one, also with Frank Whaley (and Jennifer Connelly, back when she was very "healthy" looking :) )
