In a study by Anthony Don Erickson, Ben Shaw and Zha Agabe of Bond University in Australia, it was found that in workplaces, the local workplace tyrant was either never censured or was promoted for domineering ways.

Almost two-thirds of the 240 participants in an online survey, indicated that either nothing at all or something positive happened to the bad leader. Despite their success in the office, spiteful supervisors can cause serious malaise for their subordinates, the study suggested, citing nightmares, insomnia, depression and exhaustion as symptoms of serving a brutal boss.
