There is an old saying: "The squeaky wheel gets the grease." To say that does not necessarily denigrate the squeaky wheel. It is both an observation and a warning. There are many wheels on a train and just because you concentrate on the squeaky one doesn't mean that you should not engage in regular inspection and greasing of all the other wheels.

By calling someone a squeaky wheel can be degrading. But it can also just be an observation that the person squeaking is only one part of the whole train.
