Five years ago when I first joined Ipsos, they prided themselves on giving employees the freedom to make decisions. As time went by and the company wasn't getting the sales they wanted, they cracked down on the freedom for groups to make their own decisions. Something as minor as hiring an entry level person had to be signed off on by the US finance director twice...once when you wanted to post the position (understandable), but then again when you found a candidate and wanted to make an offer. We lost a lot of good candidates waiting for the red tape of approvals.
