  • Misaligned Incentives: poorly conceived ones may incentivize risky and irresponsible behavior that undermines the mission of the company. 
  • Can Lead to Conflict:iI competitive workplaces with limited rewards, employees may engage in bad behavior to get ahead or become convinced that pursuing incentives is a zero-sum proposition and become resentful.
