    That's a common issue caused by moral hazard. Managers often use their position to force employees to please them instead of the company.

    Viaing for your position is the worst advice I’ve heard since. It becomes an I and not a we company at risk due to personal selfishness. It conflicts with right for the business. Otherwise everything else was fine.

    Recode’s recently released podcast series ‘Land of the Giants’ – ‘The Netflix Effect’ – is worth the time investment – a fair and balanced account of the history of the corporation, its management (employer – employee) paradigm, strategic goal and year to year tactics
