142. Same thing here
The Cheif Tech Officer at the company I work announced that only 15% of employees could be rated as "Exceeds Goals" on their yearly evaluation. In a 10 person person meant that only 1.5 people were eligible for the maximum raise and merit bonus. He went on to say that it was mandatory that 33% of employees were rated as "Does not Meet Goals", which immediately earmarked these employees for probation.

The problem is that corporations are no longer managed to make superior products (if they ever were), they are only managed to show a "profit" every 4 months, so that their quarterly numbers look good to Wall Street. Since most execs have no training in anything other than being executive, their best trick is squeezing every dime out of their employees salaries and delivering it to the stockholders. If I managed my home finances like corporations do I would be called a numbers wizard for asking my wife and kids to move out of the house every time I needed to cut expenses to support my mistress (I really don't have a mistress it just filled out the analogy).
