Jungle of egocentric lying spies
There are way too many captains on the boat where I worked and every single one of them worked at outsmarting the others, most of the time at the expense of the low level employees. One can feel and smell segregation, discrimination, and dirty games. Negative gossip is daily practice and backbiting is primary culture. One goes with motivation to work but the harder they try, the more isolated they feel from the mischievous others who pretend to work, but do nobody knows what until they get someone laid off.
