I think you have to factor in that we do our jobs as well or as badly as we choose to. Some get away with it, some get caught, some get promoted. We're all human just getting by.
Question if managers are so bad, why not become one and change it
Here is my thing about managers (certainly the ones here), in my experience the vast majority of them only care about pleasing the people above them, whereas the actual role of a manager is to also protect those underneath them from the BS of those above them.
Too often they let the s..t come through with no filter, and then it dumps on us. Their job is to absorb some of the s..t so that we arent as impacted and can get on with our job. If they arent absorbing the s..t then why do we need them in the first place? Its just as easy getting imcompetent tasks direct from the source and we can cut out the middle man.
