When there is complete disregard for your actual performance.. and the stated policy is that performance reviews are all supposed to be ‘needs improvement’.  I can only assume the rational is that everyone can improve and the logic is to drive people to new heights.. but this philosophy doesn’t take into account individuality.

This activity demoralizes you, the highly efficient individual contributor, the Action Oriented person.  The individual who is intelligent, motivated, and has common sense (different from intelligence) looses motivation and sees the flaws in this type of system.

The question we have to ask ourselves is aside from the obvious (I’m the hell out of here!!) how do we combat this type of insanity?
