"If you find & implement tools that bring in more revenue or demonstrate significant cost savings, you demonstrate" that you're a pliant schmoo who can be milked forever with no recognition or compensation at all. If you're fortunate, you'll get nice pats on the head and encouraging noises, because they've been taught at B-school that that is both sufficient and effective.
And the B-school bozos won't recognize that your great new software development tool or your new product is generating the revenue. They'll believe it was only their frat-buddy sales-clones who made all the difference, because, obviously, he was the one standing there when the money changed hands.
Besides, an actual increase in compensation could cut into the CEO's vacation, 3rd home plans, or investment portfolio, and we couldn't have that. The C*O and VP compensation must always go up, no matter how effectively they've hampered everyone else's productivity.
