That's not how corporate cultures work. The Nomura vs Tabata debate is just the toxic fanbase projecting their own feelings onto the creators.
Wearing nice suits and looking professional doesn't hide the ugliness of human nature when it comes to climbing the ladder, wanting to stand out, wanting to do things your way, etc.
It's subtle, but it's there. You can sense the dislike, passive aggression, and disdain in these kinds of environments. It's not in your face (well.. sometimes it is but not usually).
I think there was a rift between the two teams.
Tabata did say that he came in, shook up the development teams by changing the hierarchy, and some people resented him for it in an interview (I think it was with Eurogamer).
People don't respond well to change, especially if it was unwelcome, got them demoted, shifted to an undesirable department, or changed their creative direction.
