Today, my boss wanted us to fill out anonymous employee satisfaction surveys. The entire workforce, all 4 of us, just looked at him. How can a sample of only 4 surveys possibly be kept anonymous? He’d know who it was straight away from our handwriting. Man he must think we’re dumb… FML

when I worked for Verizon sales WFH they sent these out, and if you didn't do them you get emailed and also reminded by supervisors that you need to fill out the "anonymous" survey I started catching on, once I saw some people on my team would either be flooded with lead calls or not at all depending on what the responses were, and also people being fired for "not hitting quota" when we can all as a team see their metrics and they were killing it 😂

Work related surveys are almost never truly anonymous. You have a couple of choices - honesty or diplomacy. I recommend diplomacy. Say what you might be willing to say to your boss’s face. Otherwise there will likely be consequences.
