The performance review. It is one of the most insidious, most damaging, and yet most ubiquitous of corporate activities. We all hate it. And yet nobody does anything about it. — Sam Culbert
I was subjected to this idiocy for three years by an incompetent, corrupt boob who had lied his way into his position and had no idea what he was doing (couldn’t even send email without help). He piled all his work on me and spent most of the day walking around the office rearranging furniture. When he dumped even more work on me and I mentioned that I was having trouble getting everything done, he gave me advice on time management.
Sam Culbert says, get rid of the performance review. I say, get rid of the managers who subject their subordinates to these pointless and insulting exercises.
