To score, except where noted, for all "yes" answers add +1 to your score.
What kind of person is your boss and how secure is his or her position within the organization?
Is your boss a key executive or owner? (If your boss either doesn't like you or is himself about to be fired, that makes you vulnerable!)
Are you working for a highly visible, highly stressed individual?
Is your company large or small? Small means that if there are problems, you'll have fewer options to transfer to another division. Large may mean that entire divisions are decimated or eliminated.
Has your company recently acquired another company or is your company an acquisition or merger target?
How is your company doing financially, quarter by quarter? Not just sales, but profits.
Have there been any recent quarters when the company has lost money?
If so, over what time period and how much money?
Has top management been warned or recently replaced?
Is your company the industry leader, or do you have strong competition?
Within the United States?

Describe your company's deficiencies.
If you score 5 or less, Look in Envelope 1.
If 6 - 15, Look in Envelope 2.
