It seems for every bad day at work I get a good one. This week my boss and I have been preparing to give annual reviews. Our company does them at the same time for everyone, regardless of hire date.
Today my boss gave me mine. I got a 4.2 out of 5 rating. :) I knew it was going to be good, but I was kind of thinking high 3s. But since I just started this new position in December my raise is pro-rated. And we don't get very big annual raises (ah, what is cost of living?) so it really isn't much. But either way, more money is more money.
Tomorrow I have to give a review that I think may result in tears from the employee. I am mentally preparing for that. Ick, sometimes it really sucks being someone's boss.
