Yep. That is the corperate world for you. They consistantly think with
there brains in there rears, and half the time even if a polacy would
make sense they never explain why this or that should be done. Most of
the time they stick with a bad polacy rather than have no polacy at all.
Anytime you want't to talk to the people who matter you can't because
there is so much red tape, polacies, etc that virtually insures the
people who need to be informed don't get informed. Even if they are
informed it doesn't mean they will be quik to act, or responsive in any
way that would be helpful.

This is the corporate world. To me, the phrase, "corporate logic" is a
total oxymoron. You cannot even get to a middle man because of the
corporation's ridiculous policies, and nobody can explain the reasons
those policies exist. You cannot ask those who might actually know the
reasoning because the policies that are being followed prevent that.
The people you can actually talk to can only say, "I don't know. I only
work here.", or, even worse, as was in the case at the major credit card
company I worked for for 8 years, I was not allowed, by corporate
policy, to ever say that I didn't know. I was supposed to say stuff
like, "That's a good question. I'll look into it, and have someone call
you back on it.", knowing full well that I was not going to have someone
else call them back. The company lost a lot of business because
customers were not called back on a very regular basis, and they did not
understand why, even though the phone reps told the managers exactly why.
