I wonder sometimes if anyone on this board has ever been a manager.(Yes, I'm sure some have) Have you ever had to make the call and fire someone? Or even worse, a lot of people? It's amazing when doing reviews how every single person thinks their above average. (remember the survey of drivers, and the average person rated themselves as above average?) And of course, everyone loves their friends. So someones friends got the axe, and the managers friends didn't. If you were the manager, how many people would be saying the exact same thing about your choice? If of course, you were even allowed to make one. Anything but seniority based firings could lead to a lawsuit.
