I say this as an investment banker - someone relatively successful - but having witnessed turds rising to the top over and over again.

In the end people are really weak - they don’t stand up for themselves enough or call idiots out. And managers are the worst in needing their fragile egos fed - most of them feel inside they shouldn’t be there - and the irony is they’re right.
