“Let’s spend 4 hours writing down all the stuff we’ve done moderately well over the last year and conveniently forget about the stuff that you ballsed up.”
Annual appraisals are a load of bollocks. They are supposed to be a way of objectively bench-marking you against your peers. But there are only two ways you are going to get a good score:
- Be liked by your boss. It doesn’t matter if you are not really that good.
- Be able to cause your boss a headache if you leave.
