I got a great review this morning

I am so happy! I did not get a raise because I haven't been here long enough yet, but it looks good for when I do become eligible.

It seems strangely ironic to solicit props from the group of people who keep me from doing my job sometimes ... ... but there it is. Do the Otter Happy Dance for me!

the old, you are great and wonderful, but there is no raise bit, meanwhile your boss got 10% and a bonus and a toaster oven for keeping costs down (ie. not giving you a raise)

Next year, I bet you get an excellent review AND a shiney new tittle and maybe a cheap plastic trophy for best employee ever ... but still no rasie

You're such a ray of sunshine. Have you ever thought of entertaining the kids in a children's oncology ward?

Ditto. I get good to great review every year but that only translates to a pad on the shoulder.

Well, I got me a 4.x % raise. Plus my bonus potential doubles next year. I guess it's okay.

Good for you!

Much better than the way they do it here. I got a great review. Then upper management knocked it down to "meets expectations". They did that to everyone who works here.

It's fun to work for a company that's up for sale.

FIXED to illustrate truth behind the average workplace dynamic between Management and Workers.

That's alright, at least he didn't mention getting his raise before his review.

Re: I got a great review this morning

And another great review yesterday! This job rocks.

(Probably will get a raise, but don't know how much or when yet).

And you guys STILL make it tempting to goof around, but I'm a strong woman.
