Often jobs are advertised but then given to and old school friends son after a chat at the regattas club. I know of one huge brand where all the staff are from one or two universities and jobs advertised to keep the ministry happy and then given to the CFO's Aunt's cat whenever the reccomendation comes along.
In terms of friends groups, there is not much social class mixing at all so in that sense its cliquey. But generaly not more cliquey than other countries, try going to a local scottish pub and being a mate of everyone and you will see what cliquey means!
Business actually is more cliquey than that, sometimes you find whole families working
at a company in the same department, whenever a position opens they do not hire the most
qualified applicant but the unemployed family member. Then the same company complains why they
are not more productive and competitive compared to foreign companies. Many of these companies
that are full of incompetent workers hire temporary personnel for their projects. Squeeze out every
ounce of productivity of these underpaid desperate people (who are there under the promise of getting
a steady Job) and then they fire them as soon as the project is completed. The credit goes to the
lazy ones on the company and they start the hiring process back again to get a new batch of desperate
clowns to do all the hard work for them.
Somebody should post a balanced history of the millionaires in Peru for the last 60 years and everybody
will notice the repetitive patterns used every 5 or 10 years.
