Today I had my Annual Compensation Meeting and I want to thank all of you those who worked for TR in the past for your contribution towards the bonus I got. Although it's not a huge amount, every dollar counts and it is part of your dollars.

Anyone bothering to complete survey

Is anyone bothering to complete the organizational health survey, and if so, what are the chances that it's safe to be honest? Why does the company even pretend to care at this point? It is obvious they consider everyone expendable.
