I think it is always good to turn to employees for suggestions on cost cutting. Sometimes not making extravagant purchases by the upper management says volumes. I think people would rather go without a holiday party than see a coworker lose their home and that is a reality. However, companies practicing 9 box seem to wait for a layoff to get rid of the "bad employees" rather than practice coaching skills throughout the year. I have known very few truly bad employees in my lifetime and those people manage to stay because they are related to someone in management or are in rehab.

that for every honorable, wise response there are 50 or more panicky and unprofessional responses designed to preserve 'management' and their perks. The recent strib 'top 100' list is notable more for the firms that are not listed.

I wish Target cared for it's employees. They need to think about all the experience they are kicking out the door. If you have anytime in at Target you have a target on your back and they are getting rid of you. They should be at the top of the worst company's to work for. They are not the Fast fun and friendly company they say they are. They don't belong at #2. I think some lawyer needs to check in to class action for age discrimination.
