Did you write it yourself?
Not the mid year. For the end of the year, we have to submit our own assesment. Then they pick anything that can be construed as negative and use only that.

Good news is that our muckety muck at the top will be leaving in a few weeks. He was/is the cause of most of the discontent in the division.

Since when is September mid year? Or is this based on fiscal year?
Nope calendar year and they were due in July :rolleyes:

Odds are I will get nailed for being late for something by a few hours. :mad2: :mad2:

My favorites after being told that everything you did was exemplary, but "I have to ding you for something".

1) "Not a team player". (You mean my 70 hours of billable hours per week for a year wasn't enough to keep the Group's boutique, money-losing projects afloat?)

2) "Need better communication skills". (Um, OK. I'm stuck on a boat in the middle of a Texas bay for 14 hours a day, you won't authorize me to get a cell phone and the one time I used a marine operator you told me the company wouldn't pay the charges).

3) "Needs better attitude". (Well, duh.)

I get dinged for all of those.

Not at team player - we are a group of 4 all with different skills working on completely different things. We really aren't a team, just a collection of individual contributors that pretty much like to do their thing and leave the others alone.

Need better communication skills - No matter how many times I tell things to my boss he doesn't understand. Nor does he want to, but it's my fault. :rolleyes:

Needs better attitude. - absolutely. Sorry I saved your sorry azz twice last year, but that doesnt' count, because I told someone no when they wanted to make the 10,000th change on their system that was .... changing the font on a financial program so it 'looked nicer'. :rolleyes:

We found out that they can't rate anyone above three "exceeds expectations" because they'd then have to promote you according to corporate policies and there is nowhere to promote any of us since they're not allowed to hire anyone in the positions above us because the economy sucks.

Welcome to Corporate Amerika!

Same here. We hire only the "Best and Brightest". (then beat them down until everyone is average). We also can't get anything above "meets expectations". In my last annual, I asked my boss if one of the projects ended up better than he thought it would. "Yes it did" was his response. Then I asked him if my rating would be "exceeded expectation". "Uhhhhhhh no" was the answer. :rolleyes: Then he went digging to find somehting to ding me on. azzhat !

Whacky stuff.

We don't have mid-year reviews, and the yearly reviews I've gotten have always been positive.

Of course, our wages are frozen and we can't give you an exception...

I killed my performance appraisal this year.

got an EXCEEDS in 5 of 6 categories.

of course, we're under a salary freeze due to budget cuts. I asked for some PTO instead of raise and got laughed at...

it's all just a game.
