It's amazing when doing reviews how every single person thinks their above average.

The perspective that was being discussed is witnessing others, who we considered valuable employees being let go -- not us. There's a difference.

Anything but seniority based firings could lead to a lawsuit.

Spoken like a true weak-kneed manager. It is very much harder to understand exactly what your underlings are doing on a day-to-day basis, document and enforce performance improvement plans, weed out those going above and beyond the call of duty to make sure things go well... etc.

God forbid that you should think about a decision! That would leave it open for you to be second-guessed.
