I don't doubt this explanation at all. It shows a major defect in the
corporate culture which needs to be addressed, and until it is, the
trouble will continue.
It reminds me of recent information regarding some car issues with
Mitsubishi, where the lower and middle managers and front end customer
service workers were "protecting" management from the huge number of
failures and complaints, and safety issues. At the end of the day, the
CEO resigned over this, although he may have been "the last to know".
