Do you know how to tell when the employees of a company suck, ie they are not very good at doing their job?
When the management give you instruction, they explain every . tiny . d.e.t.a.i.l.
this is another one of those self supporting cycles. They treat you like you can't do anything without explicit instruction, you keep getting explicit instruction, so you stop thinking for yourself, they think you can't do anything without them, so they give you explicit instruction, and the cycle continues.
If you want examples, let me know (via email) 'cause I'm not making those public.
