Re: That is something the ICO is well aware of
Certainly from where I sit in a completely different industry; it appears that many corners of the bigger players work to an ethic of promoting people to the Peter Principle and then promote them one more time for luck.
The problem is that with so many promotions, it is inevitable that there are also department moves, so a Head of Department has never done the job of either their management team or indeed of the rank and file troops.
So it does not take long for their young Graduate who (albeit not all grads can be tarred with the same magnum of Champagne) to be edicting absolute crap in the name of "I run the department."
