People at all levels, especially management, witness the slow undoing of good customer service, product quality, or safety standards, and they don’t say a thing about it. Even if it violates their own value system and the mission of the company.
How this works in real life in business:
1) Bitch about something that’s wrong
2) Be labeled “not being a team player”
3) You are then seen as the problem
4) You’re fired or you must quit due to pressure or alienation
Saying you’re a “team player” in an interview is a passport to entry because you’re saying you’ll allow any shit to happen around you for the sake of selling your soul and your self-respect for a paycheck. “Team player” is code for “we’re getting away with shit here and you better not rat us out.” “Team players” are corrupt sons of bitches who deserve their inevitable failure and bankruptcy. Anyone who wants to contradict this statement is a corrupt son of bitch too, so don’t bother.
