    With the financial year coming to an end, all of us working in MNC’s would be getting prepared for the yearly ritual of completing our Annual Appraisals.

    All those working women please go ahead and fill in the ordeals faced during your appraisals.

    Let’s use this space to discuss issues like:

    · How did you convince your manager/supervisor to give you a rating that you deserve?
    · How do you react to negative feedback?
    · How is your mindset when you receive a poor rating?
    · Do you get frustrated/jealous when your colleague gets a better rating than you??

    Etc etc…

    Tips are also welcome.

    Do join in and share your appraisal experiences.

    Oh no the same topic we had and still discussing through intranet :spin

    Money matters..And i realize this every financial year ending :rotfl

    Also recognition matters right..So a tough fight raises up for designation and increments..

    This year things are different for me..

    I joined a start up company 1.5 yrs back..And i am proud to be a part of this team and itz product...Last month end we had a rumor which turned into reality within few days..yes a biggie has acquired us impressed by our product :clap:clap

    Though we loose an individuality getting into such biggies aren't that easy these dayz..so most of us are happy in a way..

    So all increments and appraisals are put on hold for the moment..By June we will be given what we had promised matching new company's policy and rules.

    So all of us waiting fingers crossed :hide:

    This is the story of Solomon Grundy :thumbsup

    we are also eagerly waiting for such season to start in our company. last 2 years we are on the same package and everyone needs a hike in one or the other way.

    and reg the questions ...

    1. negative feedback: if it is real true feedback and if iam also really thinking of it inside , i will try to take it normally.

    2. poor rating: definitely I will try to ask for more details as why and what etc . while asking i wish to keep my voice as cool as possible else it will give more negative effect.

    3. surely be frustrated if not jealous when my colleague(who is junior to me in all aspects like skills , experience , communication etc) gets a better rating than me.
    there should be justification to myself at least if a same level person gets better .
    but i will surely not ask about other pals rating.

    comparing with others in-front of a manager makes them think of us as very unprofessional.

    final one word is, if nothing is as per our expectations , there will so many other options to think of. it varies from person to person depending upon our own situations.

    what do u people say?

    i am nt happy with this years hike i got
    seems a biased decision this time
    and the reason they gave me for less hike is saying that i am the highest paid in my profile so cant exceed bandwidth:bowdown

    Anvitha,

    Thanks for your reply.

    True.
    A member in my team who is defenitely junior in all aspects mentioned by you always gets a better rating than the rest. The member just has a good rapport with the manager and hence such an outcome.

    But sadly we cannot confront our managers when they give the other person a better rating than us(when we truly deserve it).

    But how exactly can we avoid becoming victims of such biased actions??

    True again!!

    Lavi,

    Don't you feel that it's only a lame excuse.
    Did you just accept their reasons hands down or did you retaliate?
