""If I want to know what my employees are doing, I can talk to them. I can walk across the hall," Willits said. "It's not an issue for us.""......................Ummmmm, that's what you think Mr. Willits. They're parroting what you want to hear, lol! You might want to consider getting out of the Land of Oz and back to Kansas. Click your heels three times.

Dear Best Buy, you also have your head in the sand. Do you honestly think for one second that an employee will post their name along with something negative on your internal site? And forget about those suggestion boxes. We had one a few years ago and an employee typed (yep, we still had some typewriters back then) a comment and after hours management went around to all of the typewrites to match the type and find out who wrote the comment. I'm guessing it wasn't because they wanted to give that person a pat on the head.

Oh come on, Mr. Willits! From what I know of theater groups, there is quite often more *drama* behind the curtain, than on stage!

It would be helpful for companies/managers to know the REAL truth. But I still don't think this website will provide it. Too risky.
