    Taller people are seen as leaders, and attractive people are more likely to be promoted even if they aren't expected to put out; it's that stupid Classical Greek thing of conflating the Beautiful with the Good.

    Excellence is way down the list and may even be a liability if you show someone up.  Being hard-working and highly productive could mean you just get trapped and used.  I've been lucky sometimes, but generally this is the way of the world in cubicle hell.  And Cthulhu knows that's still considered to be "woman's sphere" by the retrograde.
