We've all heard the cream rises to the top and then spoils.

No I'm pretty sure our bosses don't know it all, and they
readily admit it. They haven't really figured out how to fix this

Wow, your mgm't admits they don't know everything? Ours insists they do and when you prove them wrong they just say you misunderstood them. Kinda like how they all were the best hourlies in the company before they got 'promoted'.
Our management team isn't much of a team at all, they just blame each other for any problem that arises. So individually they are know-it-alls but as a group they are pretty dumb according to how they rate each other.
