Support from Management
Micromanagement and lack of a clear direction ate the norm. Management philosophy changes weekly and io b functions and expectations are often unclear and conflicting. Overlapping management gives contradictory directives and employees can be terminated for following a managers decisions if another manager doesn't agree.
Level of Autonomy
Micromanagement is abundant. I have seen employees reprimanded in meetings and even terminated for using the "wrong" font size on a spreadsheet. Even demonstrating that you can perform a job function or task quicker and easier cam get you fires because you are "questioning" your managers decision.
