For me it has to be:

Uses non trade specific jargon, like 'Blue sky thinking', 'singing from the same hymn sheet' and other modernisms repeatedly.

Sends business emails from home after logging on to the company I.T system at an obscene hour, like 1am in the morning.

Rarely gives a concise answer to a business problem, leaves answers lacking in direction.
