My annual performance review is around the corner. And I wonder what surprise they have in store for me this time around.
If you have been following my blog, you would know that my last two performance reviews did not go well. It was a bit of a surprise to hear the managers say what they did, because at no point during the year did I receive any feedback from them. My mind automatically deduced “no feedback” as “good feedback.” But that wasn’t the case.
I am not sure what I would face this year, but I could do without the anxiety. I can only think, why can’t companies make appraisal time easier? The stress comes only when you’re given no clue about your performance.
Right now, all I can do to calm myself down is utter the golden words, “I tried my best.”
So will things be favorable this time, or am I in for a nasty surprise again?
