13. The ability to be a successful manager is rarely a quality that coincides with being a manager.
Edited on Sun Apr-05-09 11:19 PM by LostInAnomie
I've worked at family businesses, small businesses, and very large businesses, and it is a very rare thing that good managers ever are promoted beyond lower level management.

Upper management usually breaks down like this:

Family business = family members

Small business = family members or ass kissers

Large business = ass kissers or people who are very good at using buzz words or business lingo to impress those who are interviewing.

So much for a meritocracy.
