Time to kiss up to the boss?

(NBC) -- Experts say so-called "kissing up" can be bad for business, even during hard times that usually lead to a rise in buttering up the boss.
People want their managers to notice them even more in an uncertain job market.
But experts say underlings may go along with superiors' bad decisions or poor judgment, and hurt business in the process.
