The biggest impact Warren had is OI&T employees not being able to get a fair performance appraisal. His direction is that only people "that can walk on water" deserve an outstanding. Supervisors are not willing to defend their ratings under his direction...so no one other than Warren and a few "good ol' boys" get it. Nice work, so long fairness!
