in reply to Annual Self Appraisal forms and all this (censored)

I just came across this thread . . . I have to agree with Andy. As a manager, I want to get your perspective on your work, your projects, what you need, etc. Having to articulate these types of things can help you in many ways. First, it helps your manager with ammunition for awards and promotions. Second, it can provide you with a record and information to draw on when you want a salary increase, apply for another job, or face any personnel action. The corporate values section was actually interesting. I saw a job posting recently which required the applicant to discuss a time he brought his enthusism for a project to the rest of the team. Others have asked for examples of leadership. That's not uncommon.

    If you only get my perspective and needs once a year through some forms then something is definitely wrong.

    The corporate values is the most awfull of all the sections. Thanks god I don't actually have to fill that one. The Prague office boss decided that it doesn't apply to us. One of the problems of the form is that they have just one for both the business people and the developers, the same for US and Prague.

    Once I interviewed some American whose response to "Would you like somethink to drink? Coffee or something?" was "Water would be awesome!" in a very very enthusiastic voice. No need to say he did not get the job. Noone could stand him.
