Re: From my annual evaluation

Our company started the 360 reviews for managers. I think it is starting to make a difference. At least my boss has stopped calling me into his office, closing the door and intimidate me 'off the record'.

He had to share the outcome of the 360 review with his employees. It was absolutely horrible. He consistently scored at the bottom of his peer group (his ranking was included). We will go through this exercise twice a year I did not participate the first time because you have to log in with your password to take the anonymous review (uh, how anonymous is this). I probably will next time, and I will evaluate my boss the way he evaluates me. What comes around goes around.

The company has decided that based on the outcome of the reviews, managers have to start improving or they may become individual contributors. Oops, that would be a nightmare for these folks. Joining our ranks after abuse of several years may not result in a lot of cooperation.

My boss has been trying very, very hard. However, he is completely incapable of managing. He probably does not even know it. He thinks he is god with his PhD and keeps on sitting on his cloud throwing rocks at us below him.

Re: From my annual evaluation

We don't exactly have 360 reviews. Instead, we have annual surveys that ask the rank and file things about management at several levels, satisfaction, etc. Amazingly enough, when mgmt reviews the results with us, they ignore the things that got low scores, but emphasize the things that got high scores. The funny thing is that compensation has been getting abominable scores for years (go figure: we have gotten 1% a year raises as the company posts record profits every year). What does gmt say about it? "Oh, everyine thinks they aren't paid enough. Next!"

Re: From my annual evaluation

I knew a CO who felt the Navy's annual "command climate" surveys weren't good enough. Being a huge fan of Stephen Covey, he made his entire leadership attend a Covey course and then he followed it up with specific "7 Habits" changes throughout the command.

A year later he administered one of the anonymous Covey surveys to all members and sent the package off to the Franklin-Covey people for grading & feedback.

The results were so horrible that one of Covey's managers, a retired Navy captain, called the CO to find out what the heck was going on in his command and then read him the riot act for spending govt funds on what was essentially a personal jihad.

End of Covey.

Re: From my annual evaluation

I'm here in the hotel room tying flies for tomorrows trout fishing and reading this thread.

Looking back on reviews, they seem about as unimportant now, as the C+ I received in Kidergarden Finger Painting.

I think he wants to see pics of scenery and fish, CT -- not pinger painting pics. But if you have any of those finger painting pics, I would be happy to review them and offer my opinion about whether or not you were shafted in Kindergaten.

See, you could have had some of them store bought flies with you and be drinking wine right now instead of making up your own!

I'm also sorry to hear about the crushing kindergarten experience. A life changing experience to be sure. But it probably broke you free of the shackles of conformity and led to your ER.

Re: From my annual evaluation
