Annual Performance Review
Last year's review did not go well.
For this year, my supervisor has already let me know that I will not be getting a good review or raise. She explained, "I did not get a raise again this year because of my late time. Being late should not have any bearing on your performance review. This place is so unfair. Well, you aren't getting a raise either because I didn't. If I don't get one, you don't get one."
So life is supposed to be fair for her but not me?
"I am not late," I tried to counter. She was having none of it.
"As I said, I think that lateness should not be a part of your review, so whether you are late or on time is not a consideration of mine," she explained, as if this explained anything.
"So why can't I have a good review and raise?" I asked.
"Because it's not fair for you to get a raise when I didn't!" she exclaimed.
Is she a spoiled child in an adult body? This place is so dysfunctional.
What do I do? There is no effective official appeal process. My supervisor's supervisor is the one from last year who gave me a bad review and would be delighted to sign off on another one.
