I don't know if I can use bureaucratic environment in the following context:

The team only has 5 people including the manager. If I want to get a file from my co-worker John sitting next to me, I need to make a formal email request to him and copy the manager. I need to wait for the manager's approval and then John will give me an estimate for how long it takes to deliver the file to me depending on his current workload even though that file is already sitting in his PC and he can simply send it to me via email. Everything needs to follow the rules and procedures here and basically there is no creativity or flexibility allowed here. I really don't want to work in such bureaucratic environment.
