I spent most of the weekend writing my employee reviews and only got half of them done. I wonder if it is really worth it. I know most of the managers out there do not spend this much time with their reviews. I however feel obligated to do a good job even though I have only been the manager for this group for the last three months. Most managers will just put down what they want in the review, put a comment or two, and leave it at that. But I feel like if I am going to say good things or bad things, I should actually justified every good or bad rating with specific examples. It is a lot harder than it sounds, especially when you were not the group's manager for most of the year.
So what do you think? Do you really care how much time your manager puts in your review? Would you rather just get your rating and be done with it or do you actually want specific feedback on your work?
