When appraisals happen!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hate this time.. totally...
Appraisals have always been a kind of nightmare for me.. wresting a good rating from my various bosses... giving ratings to my colleagues.. recriminations.. shouting matches.. slamming doors.. arguments..
For some reason or the other appraisals never go off smoothly (except for the 2 times i can think of.. in my 7.5 yrs of work life).. if you dont have tears in your eyes.. look carefully around you.. your colleagues will!!!
And anyway, most of the times i am not very convinced about the appraisal system, in research in any case... the problem is i am very touchy about my performance.. if its unfounded by any chance, then the boss has had it from me!!!!
An extremely energy sapping exercise this!!! And i hate filling forms.. sob sob
Cant we just have a happy appraisal time.. which is actually motivating... instead of this cruel monster that it has become... wishful thinking, you say..
So this year... lets see how it goes.. i am wary... i am already tired of whats to come..
