You are correct, I am painting to broadly.
I am speaking from a mini-mid to small business frame.
Does this make a difference in your mind?
To more directly answer your question, no, I think the primary issue is one of corporate (or managerial) culture, and that can be just as top-down and pig blind in small businesses as in big ones. The main difference is that behavior like that in a small business is more likely to lead to the demise of that business--but even there it is amazing how long crappily run businesses survive.
