I can say I've left orgs that
seem
 to be about:
Leaders
Paid Staff
Egos
Profit
Status
Founder's SynDrome
Etc

Unfortunately,
 not a lot of taking keys,
Attending Drinking meetings,
 Accepting action items,
 More hours,
more shifts
when slaving and
 then ego bashed
if not threatened
for my troubles...
