Kill it with fire. Nuke it from orbit.

Whatever it takes. Just to be sure.

Yikes. As if work isn't already a minefield of anxiety.

That Simpsons episode where the family had the apparatus to administer electric shocks to each other? Coming soon to a meeting near you.

I like that idea.

Jesus Christ, whoever thought of this needs to be knocked down and kicked in the head until they stop twitching.

Is there a "middle" choice?

Because I'd give this idea the middle finger.

Will people be able to rate their supervisors and bosses?
 
2022-05-24 7:56:22 AM  
They're all working in a cryptocurrency company. At the very least, a rating of unpleasant twat is called for.
 
2022-05-24 8:01:36 AM  
No worse an idea than brainstorming...which was a terrible idea.  Employees will simultaneously go out for beers, bond with each other against management, and climb over each other's cold corpses sucking up to management to get the next promotion.

This little system would be abused, and abused hard by the worst people, then dumbass managers would misuse the data, then upper management would just do whatever the hell they want anyway, like they always have.

Do you want nobody at work to ever tell anyone anything they don't want to hear?

Because that is how you make that happen.

FTA: "My objective has been to have meaningful work and meaningful relationships with the people I work with, and I've learned that I couldn't have that unless I had that radical transparency and that algorithmic decision-making," Dalio said at the time.

Oh FFS. Does he listen to himself when he says things like this?

Yeah, fark that shiat. There's a reason Black Mirror had an episode about people ranking each other.

Two predictions

1. A lawsuit later will find this app results are systemically racist, sexist and homo/transphobic against employees due to the mostly cis-white "Libertarian" bro culture that feeds the toxic world of crypto. They will have to settle for millions in real dollars, not digital monopoly money.

2. While measuring for the "10 core values", Coinbase will later be found to have ignored sexual harassment, bullying, and other toxic behaviour by management and favored subordinates.

These predictions are based on the complicated algorithm of being a general consumer of news and knowing this is the reality for most companies, moreso "disruptive" tech companies.

It sounds like something HR would come up with. Makes it easier to come up with an excuse to fire someone.

Prediction 3: someone will try to sell their community score as a NFT.  For some reason this will appear as a poorly drawn ape

Prediction 4: the ape will be stolen

You think people in HR want to touch this with a pole long enough to touch the moon?  They will be dealing with fights every day, and productivity at work will grind to a halt.  That and the threat of lawsuits.  This is another stupid idea from the ponzi crowd in the useless blockchain "tech" industry.

I sure hope so.  I've been wanting to see some of my coworkers electrically stimulated.  And not just the ones with nipple piercings.

/it's not my fetish
//but it could become one if the right people get shocked
 
2022-05-24 8:33:08 AM  
oh there are absolutely some who want this. they are a very small group, but they exist.

This is one of the most techbro ideas I've ever seen.

And it gets bonus points for completely ignoring reality
 
2022-05-24 8:50:30 AM  
So now every phone call needs an extra 15 minutes after to complete your ratings?  Nice productivity booster, dumbass.

Memo from management: "we'd like to make our job your job, but without any increase in pay or authority"

They were too busy watching Tiger King to see that episode of Black Mirror.

Not anonymously. And they will get called in for negative reviews.

Early Orville. He went for the lulz rather than the social commentary. It was right there.

The sysadmins are going to have 100% approval rating, you can check the database if you want.

And if they don't, what are you going to do about it asshat?
 
2022-05-24 9:18:01 AM  
Yeah, I remember this episode of Silicon Valley.  Well, more of a subplot.  They show rightly considered it such an obviously bad idea that it didn't even feel the need to devote the main plot to mocking and debunking the concept.
 
2022-05-24 9:40:52 AM  
This is the dumbest farking idea I've ever heard.  At best the workers are all just going to agree to give each other positive reviews, but most likely you're turning performance reviews into a popularity contest, and for what?

If you don't trust your managers to make reasonably objective assessments about their workers... that's the problem that needs to be addressed.  If they can't do that they're either idiots who don't know how to rate their workers based on performance alone, or worse, they're playing favorites.  In either case their workers don't respect them and morale is in the garbage.

Also, it's not the workers job to rate their coworkers, that's a manager's job, and the manager is rated based on the performance of the workers.

/Just finished my quarterly reviews, all my workers got good to great reviews.
//If they didn't "meet expectations" they wouldn't be working for me.
///Apparently all the other supervisors at my factory trashed their workers to cover their asses.
////IMO, if you have a bunch of shiatty workers, you're a shiatty manager.
//I'm covered, my crew has been beating every other one since I took over the night shift 3 years ago.

It goes deeper than that. Don't ask questions or you'll drag out the meeting and look stupid. Don't suggest any ideas, because you'll look bad if it gets shot down. Support other people's bad ideas, because otherwise they'll give you a thumbs-down.

Basically this tech will be used to gang up on people low in the pecking order and punish them quickly and severely like a summer storm.

Geez, what part of marketing do you work in?

Like an ad agency and everyone tries to take credit for the creative ads, or something?
