    I'll start. Managers will claim that another managers team is better suited to be part of their org. Talk to senior people and write a proposal. These are also the type of people who will hang around senior people at team outings etc.

      Those are the ones which make it worse for everyone. There are also engineers like that. In most cases they back down when confronted directly, the idea is to be direct and not try to play them at their game.

    Tonnes of bullshit around ownership. Should team X or Y be doing this project. Who cares, as long as it gets done?

    Incompetent scoping by manager/director pushing their reports to the brink with deadlines.

    Those managers should get poor ratings for bad scoping. Instead, the hapless report gets a bad rap when something doesn't get done well.

    Managers backstabbing each other and ended up with their direct reports on pivot.

    Mutually assured destruction.

  • Design by maximising opportunity to finger point rather than actually reducing risk / tech debt.
