Auuuughhh


I just gotta tell this story because it still leaves me weak when I think of it. Last month I had my performance review at work. I hate those damn things for so many reason that I'm not going to get into here. Anyway, at my company they require employees to suggest a minimum of 3 people for your manager to solicit feedback on your performance. These 3 people must be someone that you have worked with during the year.

You never know who said what during your review unless the person solicited replies with something that identifies them. Usually the managers won't divulge information to give you a clue. Just general statements that anyone could make good or bad. Sometimes they don't even mention it.

During my review my manger told me that she recieved good feedback from the 3 people that I suggested. She documented two sentences that were positive. That all sounds good. However, she then revealed to me that she solicited additional responses after receiving the responses from those I suggested. Not unusual at all. Until she told me that she solicited 10 additional people to give feedback! She was surprised at the responses and said that this had never happened before. What had never happened before was her evil intentions not developing as she planned. All of the responses came back positive!! Fuckin Bitch!

I didn't react during this meeting because, like I said I don't care about these reviews and any negative reaction is just something else to be added to the next review. The thing that bothered me was her persistence in attempting to find negative feedback. 10 additional people solicited is abnormal. I'm positive that she tried 3 more and they came back positive so she kept going until she was exhausted or ran out of time before the deadline.

Thank you Lord for not allowing her weapons formed against me to prosper, but sometimes things like this cause me moments of weakness. It just makes me tired.

I'm sure she was pissed that everyone had great things to say about you. I hope you had a little fun rubbing it in her face... at least in your mind :-)

I would think that it's kind of shifty for a manager to go round searching for bad news just so she could throw it up at you.

But now that you've had 13 people state positive things about you, I hope that information is used so you can get what you trully deserve. A nice raise, a promotion or what ever it is that you really want.

It gives me satisfaction to hear this. You better be glad that the manager didn't fabricate anything when she couldn't find anything1 They some evil things out there!

That is a mess and a half. These devils will do whatever they must to get at you! I cannot believe she was THAT pressed for you to have negative feedback!

Congrats on having positive working relationships with your co-workers. Being a Leo, I am not surprised though.

By the way, does your company allow 360 evaluations - mine do. It would be interesting to see if that hag could get 10 people to say positive things about her.

would agree with curious the value of your worth and vested interest in the company needs to be commended.

Terrence,

Yes my job does do 360s. It seems they are only done when they have an issue with someone. Currently they don't think they have one with her. However, if they did do a 360 I'm sure they would find that she's not well respected.
