The following post will sound like sour and bitter gripes of previous experience. But they are all teach me something.
One of the common issues arises is when the middle management look after their own self interest 1st while preaching teamwork and taking one for the team to the artistes.
In a corporation, there are a lot of these middle managements all looking out for themselves. Hey, for a lot of people, its human nature to want to climb the ladder and be in a position of power.
A classic example would be the production manager to tell the artistes that they have to work through the weekend to get the shot out and then himself taking that weekend off to some beach resort.
Of course there is nothing technically wrong with the above scenario since its the artiste's job to deliver the shot, not the manager.
