johnny_vegas: Except your overall grade wasn't the end all/be all.  Your grade average was compared to the grade average of the person that signed your evaluation.


Yup, and realistically for the Navy at least it was a rating scale from 3.0 to 5.0.  Fitreps/Evals are an impressive exercise in bullshiatting most of the time.

/for farks sake you write your own eval most of the time anyway.
//bonus points to the IT1 who submitted the exact same blurb everytime about his great attention to detail, spelling errors and all.

It's USAF policy not to imply ownership of an eval. Always use the indefinite article an eval, not my eval.

brax33: brax33: Gubbo: Is there a good performance review software package in the world.

Or is it the process that's broken and not the software

"You did amazing this year but I'm not allowed to give you all exceptionals on reviews, they'll just be sent back to me even with full justifications."

Have heard this multiple times while working for the govt.

Also, shiat like this is why quiet quitting became a thing.

If you "max out" (as much as is allowed) your review every year because you're so good at your job, there's no "visible" improvement on reviews, so you're passed over for raises because you're just consistent. Consistently excellent, but still only consistent to people who only read reviews and compare them to the previous year.

Don't appreciate the talent of your employees and eventually they'll realize that there's absolutely no point in trying.

If you consistently put in actual effort, you get punished, so why even bother? Go back to crunch time when it's actually critical, but otherwise put in the effort of what your salary and appreciation by managers says they value you at. (Less than dirt, more often than not.)


A reasonable guess is most government employees could be diligent in their work effort for 4 out of 8 hours a workday and being rated outstanding just to rid a supervisor of a problem child

You'd think with all the time saved by not doing PT that the Air Force wouldn't also be such a joke in other areas.

yanceylebeef: When I was in, the APR changed from a nine point rating to a five point rating. To get rid of Appraisal Inflation. We went from firewall 9s to firewall 5s. It's a garbage system no matter how you count it.


And then we got rid of the numbers and replaced them with phrases "does not meet, meets some, not all, meets all, exceeds some, exceeds all" Everyone still calls them by the previous numbers and nothing has changed.

What sucks with the system shutting down is that everyone that had a report going through the wickets now has to redo it on the PDF forms. And of course, the length of the performance statements on the PDF forms is different  from the myeval forms forcing a bunch of people to work over thanksgiving to meet deadlines.

I hope whichever CMSgt or Colonel who had stock in salesforce and pushed this shiat rots in hell.
