My company loves to do surveys about everything to know what employees think.
If your company use that kind of surveys, do you trust that the survey is anonymous? And do you answer honestly?

    Of course it’s not anonymous.

    Amazon has two systems like that. An annual Tech Survey, which claims to be anonymous, anonymized team level results are available to anyone and are fairly accurate. Most answer honestly and it's been a great tool.
    Then there's a daily Connections pop-up which claims to be anonymous until hr wants to follow up, and I hear lots of stories about people being managed out when their manager finds out they submit negative answers. Which is easier to figure out for them if it's daily.

      I submit review only to my manager. Is bad for him to have negative reviews about him, so he's incentivised to manage me out to get his score up. But if _everyone_ on the team submits negative reviews then he gets managed out.

    “Anonymous.” That’s cute.

    If the company says the survey is anonymous, I take them at their word and will welcome any litigation for being deceptive.

    Infosys sends out surveys with terribly uncatchy names every 5 minutes. I spend more time filling out surveys than interacting with management. It’s insanity.
