Meritocracies and anti-meritocracies.

Some workplaces are meritocracies, where if you are competent and you work hard, you are rewarded and you get ahead. Others are anti-meritocracies, where competent people are penalized because they make the others look bad.

That's probably my single biggest criterion for deciding where I want to work or where I don't want to work.
