Itâ€™s a red flag to me if thereâ€™s just too much consensus and not enough dissent. I feel like in any human community thereâ€™s always dissent because people just disagree. Anytime there doesnâ€™t appear to be dissent, it means that the corporate culture has just shifted way too much toward consensus. That means the leadership just doesnâ€™t welcome dissent enough.
