HR wants "real feedback" from sales team - how real should one be?
My cousin works in sales at a mess of a growth stage startup (grew too quick, everything is chaos) and has a grossly incompetent boss (he lies about caring for his kid while he's actually off doing a side hustle, clients literally drop deals because they hate working with him, has changed her incentive structure 4 times in 6 months, etc.)
HR reached out to her wanting to get some "candid feedback" about her boss and how sales is run. How much would you hold back? She's afraid of retaliation, but cares about the company and wants to fix her situation.
