Mentality of the factory

You may work at a place where the attitude of management reflects the mentality of the factory.

The manager’s job is to follow instructions and make sure others are following instructions as well.

Mangers develop policies and procedures as a long list of mechanical rules – show up on time, follow the steps, do no less, we will pay you.

So much time has passed now that these mechanical rules have become a matter of form over substance.
