Status. It's all about status. Big bosses have to have an office with a window and a big desk etc.

Big bosses get big shiny toys long before frontliine staff who need proper kit get anything at all.

BTW. Punch did a cartoon decades ago of a sharply suited Mafiosi stood in front of a big desk, being told "I waited for years before I had my own blood stained carpet".
