Once you tie up promotions, perks, raises, bonuses on things like that people fall in line. When your peers fall in line you fall in line or are fired. In on prominent IB it has a term for it - It covers everything from arranging refreshments and condiments for internal seminars to creating lots useless products in the hope that something nice will turn up for free. And people used to die to be on these internal projects.Other places especially the top 4 consulting firms has something similar. Lots of useless white papers, prototypes , PPT slides emerge from this. People get burnt out. Pure rubbish gets produced but every once in a while something nice comes out. If it is from you, that year you are a hero, the next year ... that is another story. And you do all this along with your regular job.
