Look up the term "collaboration." If there are impenetrable walls between the various disciplines as you suggest, then there is no collaboration.

Also, there are potentially 4 more groups (depending on the scope of the game):
Production (project management)
Audio
Writing
QA

Yes, 2 of those don't "work on a game's content," but it could be argued that programmers don't work on content -- they work on the game's functionality, not the game's content/ assets.
