It appears to me that the company is padding their numbers (again) this year. Since there is no way to know for sure, this is just a hypothesis. Remember, they can put-out any numbers they want because there is no mechanism in place to track either accuracy or anonymity. Consider this. Last year my manager was "critical", with an SFA score in the 40's. His PM counterpart was also critical. Everyone I talked to roasted both of them on the SFA, yet they both come back with scores in the 80's. Improbable, and impossible given the input I've received on how people scored these two. Several of my slams weren't even recorded in the individual manager scores in the final break-out of the numbers. Hmmm. Now, company-wide. I'm hearing numbers are up, which doesn't exactly coincide with current conditions and/or morale. Gee, what would Uncle Fred do if his numbers sucked during the RLA controversy? Lie, and lie big, that's what. Apologists, please have at it, but a logical mind should recognize the disconnect between what the numbers are showing and what they should be showing. I'd love to have a look at the real numbers.
