I've seen situations where management was indeed aware of bad behavior of
personnel but for various reasons consciously took no action. These reasons

They wrongly believed that not dealing with these situations was less
offensive than taking action. As a consequence, good people got fed up and
left, not to mention that many projects were negatively affected in a number
of ways. Good leadership is lacking in many organizations.
