The Downside of Hierarchical Organizations. Disadvantages

On the down-side, if abused, a hierarchical organization will breed not only a lack of productivity, but an atmosphere of mistrust.
Abusive managers will utilize the hierarchy to assume maximum credit for success and blame their subordinates for monumental failures.
In theory, a think-tank of employees from each level in the hierarchy will increase problem-solving, team-work, and motivation/ ownership over organizational goals.
