So… many of you many know that I’m not particularly happy with management here at this job, thanks to some rants I’ve posted in the past. Yet again, though, I’m compelled to shout out a big “Fuck You!” to them.
Our reviews are next week. Not fun. They usually work out as, “Okay, this is what you need to work on. Here, have a token raise.” We already have ten gajillion fucking meetings a week- now we get to have one where we’re the star! :rolleyes:
We have to fill out our review forms, with questions like, “In what way do you suck at your job, and why should we fire your sorry ass?” (I may have paraphrased that question a bit, but the intent’s the same.) I particularly despise this. If you like the work I do, praise and raise me. If you’re unhappy, take me aside for a word, and fire me if I don’t get better. Don’t waste my time and have me fill out a form that you’re going to ignore, anyway. Oh, and don’t think I didn’t notice the fact that there’s no section on “What can we, the company, do better?”, like there was last year. Boy, could I fill THAT question out now.
Today, though, takes the cake. We just got an email telling us that, no, there’s no chance in hell we’re going to get a raise, but that still, the review process is valuable to us. sigh
So basically, this is just going to be a “You suck” meeting, as opposed to a “You suck, have some extra money” meeting.
Pardon me if I’m underwhelmed.
