** In one episode, Globes targets the plant as a potential source of talented employees. They first approach Smithers, and when he turns them down they go for the number three guy at the plant- Homer. When the man who caused a meltdown in a simulation containin no radioactve materials is your best employee after the boss's HypercompetentSidekick, you have a problem.

** Apu is competent enough running Kwik-E-Mart, but the BigDamnMovie shows that he is not above altering expiration dates on expired products in order to improve his profit margin.

** Hyperion under the employ of [[BigBad Handsome Jack]] is far worse. He treat his human workers and the robotic Loaders as expendable pawns, builds a city near an area teeming with bandits, Threshers, and Stalkers, and is willing to resurrect an ancient alien {{Kaiju}} not knowing or caring that he'd eventually lose total control of it and possibly let it loose on the people of Pandora.
* Cerberus of ''Franchise/MassEffect'' has a long history of experiments that go horribly wrong, backfire and end with almost all parties involved killed. Among fans, [[FanFic/GloriousShotgunPrincess this is known]] [[Webcomic/ThreePanelSoul as the]] [[FanNickname Cerberus Taco Cart Theorem]].

** while Mister Torgue is a pretty cool guy himself and a talented weapons designer who founded his own corporation, Torgue Corporation, solely on his skill with explosive weaponry, he is absolutely incompetent when it comes to actually running the company. He tends to focus his resources more on blowing shit up and staging illegal death matches and is not above getting his own employees killed out of poor management and short-sightedness by entering them in said death matches.
