In top tech companies, there are some people who will never leave out of their own accord, and for whom, there is never any sense of urgency.

There's no incentive for them to make positive changes, nor to help their team mates achieve better results.

They want to look like they're helping, directing, managing, and contributing as much as possible with as little effort as possible. But having real, impressive success stories in the team only works against them.


If you're unlucky to have enough of them surrounding you, your incentives are inevitably going to have to align with them. So the effect is a bit like a cancer cell, which reproduces, occupies and dominates and area of the org which will never be productive again.
