    Default Permie tulipe......

    Just got the hapf year appraisal form from my manager. Life was so much better when he was my client.

    What is the point of appraisal forms? Thought we were supposed to sit down and have a joint chat - this guy has completed it and emailed over to me saying we will discuss at the next 1-1 a week away.

    Thankfully mostly good, but, makes you seriously question the bollocks us permies have to go through!

    Well done Wilmslow.



    You've nicely articulated Reason #1 Why I'm Not A Permie.

    Keep up the good work for that full year appraisal.

    I thank God I became freelance before this sort of tulip became fashionable.

    You've come right out the other side of the forest of irony and ended up in the desert of wrong.

    It was only invented to give some HR drones something to do. Any half decent manager can take the same work and same objectives and produce a fully justified appraisal across the results spectrum, from "wilmslow" to "fail" to "resounding success".
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    I worked at a governnent place that had quarterly appraisals. HR has a reputation there......and the quarterly appraisals were hated by most folks I knew. I was contracting so I didn`t give a damn, quite enjoyed teasing the permies prior to their next quarterly appraisal
