    I just noticed that the listening tracks that accompany my German language course textbook were automatically cataloged by iTunes. The genre is listed as hip hop.

    I'm having a moral dilemma at my work. Every year in the past several years, my department has taken part in a Gallup survey to show how "engaged" the employees are with their work. The survey involves 10 questions that you can rate from strongly disagree, disagree, neutral, agree, and strongly agree. Now last year our department rated the questions really low, meaning that the employees thought that management had some work to do to help us feel more engaged.

    In a meeting a couple months ago, my direct supervisor told our group that the higher up management looked at our results from last year and were not happy. My supervisor intimated that with such low results, the higher up management could move our work elsewhere, meaning our department would be axed, and we could all lose our jobs.

    So today the management is beginning their new campaign to get everyone to participate in the survey. They have assured us on emails that particpation is "voluntary" and "anonymous." They have also told us they will give everyone a prize after he/she takes the survey. The group within the department that has 100% participation will receive a free lunch.
    My problem is why would I want to participate in that when I cannot be honest? They make it sound like if I don't give high ratings, we might lose our jobs. Also, my manager just recently came over to my desk and said "you haven't taken the survey yet..." WTF? I thought it was supposed to be ANONYMOUS.

    So I'm not participating for those reasons. I won't be bribed and bullied into particpating if this is supposed to be "voluntary" and "anonymous," and I can't give honest answers for fear of losing my job.

    typical incompetent middle management bullshit. They get a shitty rating from their employees and how do they respond? by taking the issues to heart, working hard to improve? no. they make threats. "Rate us better or be fired".

    The management did actually try to improve things since then, but that veiled threat just put me off. And now I get to be the one employee in our group that prevents everyone else from getting a free lunch. Joy. We'll see how this turns out, and if I get "outed."

    But if I participate, I don't want to be held responsible if the Gallup poll results is one of the reasons they'll use for getting rid of my department. God, I'm a jerk.

    Amy, if you can't be honest, don't participate. You'll feel crummier about having to lie than about not saying anything.

    no. amy, take the test and mark every answer excellent. that way you participated and you let them know what you really think of them at the same time. it's a flawed test and you know it and they know you know it, so by giving them exactly what they want to hear proves your point about the stupid test in the first place and lets you stand your moral ground. any middle management type that can see the genius in you answering the test in that way will respect you. these select few will be in the minority but will also be the ones most likely to get promoted themselves and remember you when they are trying to build a staff of their own. the ones that don't see the beauty in giving straight a's all around will either think you're a real team player or else think you're absolutely crazy to be so loyal when they themselves are not. either way they will fear you. it's a win win situation all around. treat most aspects of your job as if you were bill murray in caddyshack and you will never go wrong. i promise.

    jesus i miss my thread.

    Do something about it. You can't preach initiative to amy and then mention how displeased you are with something that is well within your control.

    The surveys themselves are actually anonymous, so no one will know what answers I entered. There goes your stupid theory, mob.

    i thought you said they WEREN'T anonymous. they know you haven't taken it yet right? or is it just the answers? if it's just the answers, do what i said, and then leak that to the smartest people in your department. they're typically the ones out back having a smoke. trust me. i know what i'm talking about here.

    this doesn't constitue legal advice, btw. not a lawyer but learning at least THAT aspect of the game. ok peace.

    No, I said they ARE anonymous. I thought that also meant whoever decided not to fill out the survey would be anonymous too, but I guess I was wrong about that.

    see?

    mark all a's. or, barring the courage to do that, go with all c's. you won't make any friends but at least you won't stand out. kind of like a baked potato with no toppings. you'll eat it but think, meh.

    Amy, theoretically if you wanted to take it and have your answers known, you could write your name on it [up in the corner, like high school] and then cross it out badly, like you realized it was supposed to be anonymous after the fact. Just a thought.

    They might think you're an idiot, but at least you'd be a popular one. Or a very unpopular one, depending on your answers.
