  1. The managers are too permissive and fully trust their teams; they do not check the work results, allow the testers to perform their work how they want. Under such conditions people become disorganized and irresponsible. Results of such security testing, load testing, functional testing or any other testing type may be unreliable, serious defects may be missed; important areas may be insufficiently verified.
  2. The managers are too authoritarian. They carefully plan all the activities for every team members, check all the test results and discourage any suggestions arguments and initiative of the testers.
