I sort of understand why they are necessary but I really fucking hate annual reviews.
I can barely remember last week let alone what I’ve contributed in the last year. I’ve got absolutely no interest in talking about my achievements and goals.

My goals are trying not to go insane and earning enough to pay the bills and put food on the table. Beyond that, right now, I really don’t care.

Can’t actually put that on my review documents though so instead I’ll have to make some benign crap up and pretend I’m enthusiastic about my job.

Wish I could just think up this stuff instead of staring angrily at my screen for the last hour.

    One of the reasons I like contracting, don't have the bullshit annual reviews and it's acceptable to admit to doing it for the money.

    @nibor I was considering contracting about a year ago. Recruitment hell and IR35 put me off though.
    Maybe it’s time to reconsider 🤔

    Luckily enough where I work the entire annual review session is just the line manager taking us on a coffee run and telling us what the others think about us, and if you've got a raise or promotion you'll be told and that'd about it

    Coders don't do annual reviews.
    We have project managers doing them for us.
