Good people let down by very poor management

There are a majority of great people but there are a couple of senior managers who make the place a terrible place to work. There is a lack of resource and far to many projects to be supported. The biggest problem is that rather than being realistic two of the senior management team insist on telling the businesses that their projects can and will be delivered. Multiple projects fail due to lack of resource. Problem is that when the businesses complain that the projects have not been delivered and that certain people in management have promised they would be, the businesses then complain to said manager and the project manager is then blamed! If you then try to defend yourself or make suggestions for improvements these managers then start on a course of making people feel worthless and inadequate, saying that they are not doing their job properly, even suggesting that they should look for a new job! Several people have left for the same reason
