They stress culture and values, but much of it is lip service for the board room. No credit is given for high employee satisfaction scores year in and year out (building positive culture within a team), but HR is quick to react to anonymous HR hotline calls and wild goose chases.

They don't care about the customers or the mid-level managers -- only the ones that will help them look good in the board room with the other executives. When the fiscal year is not going to meet projections, headcount quickly becomes just another another expense line.
