Culture of bullshit. In some companies, the better you produce bullshit and fluff the better you get treated. Nobody cares who is doing the actual work. Whoever speaks about that work will get rewarded. In such culture, people who can do stuff will escape and people who assemble bullshit all day will stay. Then people wonder why nothing is being shipped...

This is really tragic when it is whoever speaks poorly about that work will get rewarded. It's easy to throw stones and sound smart; it's very difficult to create. And so many managers (and others, actually) can't seem to tell the difference.
